New Fairfield firefighters caution people doing outdoor winter activities on icy surfaces

The New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department is issuing some warnings and reminders to people taking part in outdoor winter activities like fishing and skating.  Members say venturing out onto ice-covered water calls for caution because conditions can vary from area to area.  The cautioned never to drive a vehicle, snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle onto ice.  In addition to the risk of drowning, an individual falling through ice may become victim to hypothermia, so it's recommended that a life jacket is worn.  In addition to reducing reaction times, alcohol lowers the body's internal temperature and increases the chances of suffering hypothermia so it's alcohol avoidance is recommended.
