Recreation and Safety

Make safety a priority

Brookfield Renewable is strongly committed to public safety and to providing a safe recreational experience.

This winter season, please remember the following safety tips:

  • Stay clear of rivers and reservoirs at this time of the year as water and ice conditions can change quickly and without notice
  • Pay attention to your surroundings and respect all signs and warning signals
  • Always wear a suitable life jacket
  • To help you better prepare for your next outdoor activity, be aware of weather conditions and dress accordingly
  • When snowmobiling near hydroelectric facilities, please respect authorized trails and be cautious of guy wires and poles that may not be as noticeable during the winter season
