Hidden Dangers of Snow Forts
Making a snow fort and playing in it is part of winter fun. The Lakeville Fire Department wants that fun to be safe, so please follow these precautions:
If you think the snow fort might collapse, get out immediately.
Always have an adult outside a snow fort. If it collapses, you can suffocate and nobody will be around to get help to dig you out.
Be careful about building a snow fort in the “Big Snow Pile” that forms at the end of a driveway. Children playing inside such a fort are at risk of getting hit by a passing car.
