Ice Safety on Lake Hopatcong


The fourth and fifth graders of Durban Avenue Elementary School were given a lesson on ice safety on Friday, January 24, 2014 by the Lake Hopatcong Foundation. The Hopatcong Police Department, Fire Department, and EMT workers came dressed in full rescue attire to simulate a real ice rescue for the students.

During their presentation, students were instructed on some simple ways to stay safe on the ice. Keeping calm, informing adults as to your whereabouts, and having the right tools, were some key pieces of advice the students were given. The number one thing students are to remember is that “Ice is NEVER 100 percent safe!” So always be prepared for the unexpected and make smart decisions!

As always, in an effort to keep our students safe, Durban Avenue School continues to support healthy, safe choices both inside and outside of the classroom!
