Walking Safely In Icy Conditions
Concise Length 10 min
There's a good chance that all of us will find ourselves walking on icy surfaces at one time or another. Even a small piece of ice can end up becoming the most dangerous piece of ice in the world if you're not careful. Not only do many people die each year when striking their heads on concrete after a slip on ice, but also many other injuries occur, such as dislocated hips, dislocated shoulders, and broken ankles.
In this program, EMT/Firefighter Martin Lesperance explains how and why walking on icy surfaces is dangerous as well as the proper safety precautions viewers should take when walking on snow and ice.
