Ice fishing life saving device installation.

This petition had 119 supporters

The ice fishing community recently lost another fellow ice fishermen in Pa. Due to the abnormal temperatures that Pa has had in recent years, ice fishing enthusiasts have been taking additional risks to fulfill their favorite pastime. Although ice fishermen should know to use a spud bar and ice picks to secure their own safety, sometimes this is not enough. If a person lacks the upper strength to pull themselves out of a hole, ice picks may not be their saving grace. However, if there were life saving flotation devices attached to rope located at every boat launch and access point, their chances of survival would significantly increase. A bystander, friend, or fellow ice fishermen would have another option available to them after placing a 911 call. Time is of the essence, we who sign this petition propose life saving flotation devices installed or restored at (ALL) Pa DCNR lake access points and boat launches.
