As a training exercise, the Ottawa Police Service Marine Dive Trail Unit officers were out on the Ottawa River today to take part in Ottawa Fire Services’ ice safety demo. Along with Ottawa Paramedics and Ottawa ByLaw, the services worked together to rescue this firefighter who demonstrated the dangers of walking on thin ice with his dog.
