Local COVID19 News

In an effort to keep everyone informed of what is happening locally, we will try our best to collect information for you and post it in one place so that you do not have to hunt for it.

Urgent message from our Battalion Chief

Your firefighters have never let you down and they need you right now. Please search your house including your garage for dust masks, surgical masks, N-95 Masks, or higher level of respiratory protection.

If you were caring for a loved one at home who has since passed away, if you work in construction or landscaping, if you manage a surgery center or dentists office that is shutting down during the pandemic except for emergencies, or any other business that utilizes masks, please donate them to Hilton Head Fire Rescue.

You can leave them at any fire station or Fire Rescue HQ at 40 Summit Drive by the Convenience Center.  If we aren’t there leave them by the door.
