CCFR takes a chilly swim to demonstrate ice safety



The only truly safe ice in Juneau is at the Treadwell Arena. That’s one of the lessons from Saturday’s ice safety workshop.

A full house packed the Mendenhall Visitor’s Center auditorium this weekend to learn about ice safety. The hour and a half workshop was made up of a slideshow and video of safety tips and advice before attendees headed out into the snow to watch CCFR volunteers demonstrate ice rescues on the pond next to the visitor’s center.
