Sheriff Dahl reminds residents that ice is not safe


With the winter season approaching, Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl reminds those in the area that the lakes in the Brainerd area are not yet safe for foot or vehicle traffic.

The temperatures have not been cold enough for an adequate amount of ice to form, according to Dahl.

If you venture out on thin ice, you are endangering yourself and the lives of rescuers who are called to assist you, Dahl added.
