Ice safety equipment program handing out emergency gear

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Marquette City Fire Department would like to remind residents and visitors of Marquette to stay safe on Lake Superior this winter.

To assist in this, the fire department, through a generous grant from the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, is currently handing out self-rescue ice picks, emergency whistles, and ice safety information free of charge at the #1 Fire Station at 418 South Third Street in Marquette.
