Ice Awareness (IA)

This classroom session is geared toward those who supervise emergency responders who respond to incidents on surface ice including frozen lakes, ponds, and rivers.

Participants will be introduced to the due diligence and risk management required for this high risk environment, and understand the various training levels for rescue personnel. The course identifies hazards associated with surface ice and introduces the techniques and equipment that can be used to reduce the risk.

This course does not certify participants for on-ice activities.

Ice Awareness points out the hidden dangers as well as recognizes the obvious hazards of iced over bodies of water. Like other Awareness classes this course does not prepare a rescuer to operate in that environment.
