A Perfect Day in the name of CHEO

PIIFA 2017 Ice Fishing Derby

Our local ice fishing community, The Petrie Island Ice Fishermen's Association, recently held an ice fishing derby in one of our bays. It was a perfect day with perfect weather and the derby was a tremendous success.

There were participation prizes for most but it was Mario Croft and Richard Viens who took home prizes for the best fish. Mario Croft pulled in the largest fish, a northern pike at almost 6 pounds. Richard Viens got second prize with a northern pike at just under 5 pounds. Oddly enough, it was Mario Croft again who got third prize for the smallest legally caught fish.

The event had more than 175 participants and raised almost $3,000.00 for the CHEO Foundation to help sick kids in our area.

A big thank-you to organizers Richard Beaudoin and Christine Tessier and all the volunteers who helped make this day possible.

Drone Gives a Spectacular View of the Derby

Shawn Ferrier did a flyover with his drone during the Petrie Island Ice Fishermen's Association ice fishing derby on Saturday, February 18. The video gives us a fantastic view of derby at its peak.

Saving yourself in an emergency

The video is painful to watch but it might help save you in an emergency.

Most know the basics of safety on the ice but this video is a vivid refresher of what to do when you are alone and go through the ice. This video describes what occurs to your body after falling through the ice and how to perform a self rescue. The video was performed under the supervision of trained Fire & EMS professionals. Water depth was 10 feet and a life jacket was used as a safety precaution.

AED Plus Defibrillator

AED Defibrillator now at Oziles'

Something every public place in Ontario should have.

We recently received our new AED (automatic defibrillator). This unit, made by Zoll, provides voice commands for not only the use of the unit but also when doing chest compressions. It’s a fool proof unit that we hope we will never need to use. It is located in the store near the office door. If anyone would like to get a brief explanation of its use here’s a link to a video:
