The other day I heard a PSA on the radio. Now, keep in mind, I live in Wyoming. Our Public Service Announcements probably sound a little different than yours. But this little Wyoming PSA was focused on ice-fishing. More specific, what to do if an unlucky fisher fishes on thin ice and falls in. I have never been ice fishing and it is not even remotely on my bucket list of things I need to do before I die to feel accomplished. But I listened to the steps anyway.
Step 1: Get the person out of the ice. Pretty self-explanatory here. Just a reminder, they probably aren’t doing a leisure swim.
Step 2: Take off the wet clothes. Again, pretty self-explanatory.
Step 3: Put the person in a sleeping bag. Warm your fishing buddy up. Makes complete sense.
Step 4: Take your clothes off and get in the sleeping bag with your buddy to warm him or her up quicker.
Full disclosure, if I happen to ever go ice fishing with you and you fall through the ice it was nice knowing you. I’m not getting in the bag.
Let’s just say, this did not entice me in the least to go ice fishing.
