St. Johns Fire District has received two High Water vehicles and two Hum Vees from the National Guard to assist, if necessary, in our area. Those vehicles will be staffed with 8 National Guard personnel as well as with St. Johns Fire District personnel. The National Guard will be taking the vehicles around Seabrook Island sometime today September 4 to familiarize themselves with the area. St. Johns Fire District has also strategically placed the small boats that were provided by Kiawah Island Community Association.
St. Johns Fire District is tentatively planning to move personnel from Station 2 on Seabrook Island later in the afternoon of September 4, but expects to leave a Medical Squad to respond to medical calls as long as weather permits. Fire Apparatus will respond to other fire and hazard emergencies, coming from a longer distance, as long as weather, wind or flooding permits. St. Johns Fire District will inform the Town when they relocate personnel and that information will be published by the Town.
