Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen says while they want everyone to enjoy the outdoors, make sure you have a plan and use extra caution when you venture on the ice.

A few safety tips include telling someone where you're going and when you will return, wear a life jacket, have ice picks available, and physically check the ice conditions with a chisel or auger before you step on the ice.

Larsen says ice conditions are never consistent so don't put yourself or emergency responders in a dangerous situation.
