Ice Fishing Safety

Don't panic if you fall through the ice. Remain calm.
Use ice awls to pull yourself up onto the ice.
No ice awls? Try "swimming out," which lets your body rise up and allows you to get onto firm ice.
Use your legs to kick behind you to keep from being pulled under.
If you can't get to safety, call for help.
Slip your "loose boots" off to make treading water easier.
Keep your clothes on because they will insulate you from the cold water.
Once on the ice, stay low and distribute your weight over as much surface area as possible.
If someone else falls in, always remember to use Reach (stick fishing, pole), Throw (rope, PFD, anything that floats), Row (row or push a boat), Go (call for help).
