Spring Rivers and Streams

With ice and snow melting we must remember there is always a chance for flash floods and heavy current in nearby streams and rivers. These rivers and streams can quickly double in size as some may be dam controlled or even the possibility of beaver dams giving out. Staying away from moving water this spring could make the difference from a dry hike to a freezing and unexpected spill into a river or stream.

Spring Thaw Precautions

With the first signs of spring coming our way there are a few things we must keep in mind. Melting of large amounts of snow and ice can have significant flooding threats and being prepared is always a good idea. Also roof ice can be a tremendous falling hazard as the ice chunks can weigh up to a couple hundred pounds or even more.

Spring Ice Safety

With winter lasting longer than usual this year, ice conditions will be unpredictable especially as the spring thaw begins. As soon as we have a few warm days, the potential for currents and sun to erode the ice are much greater. As the snowmobile season may last a little longer we must remember ice safety when going out on it this year.

    Since the 1900's...

    Born under the name George Hutcheson, Hutcheson, Reynolds & Caswell Ltd. began providing insurance policies in Muskoka since the early 1900s. Bernard Reynolds joined the firm in the 1940s and purchased the firm from George Hutcheson in 1967. Finally, in 1980, David Caswell joined the company's ranks to complete Hutcheson, Reynolds and Caswell. We have grown along with our name and provide the same dedication to superior customer service and top-notch insurance coverage that George Hutcheson was famous for over 100 years ago.
