The Icehouse

Hilton Head Island Fire/Rescue Station 6 (The Icehouse) was built in 1982. The building was designed
to house the Headquarters of the Hilton Head Fire Department prior to the merger with the Sea Pines-Forest
Beach Fire Department and the Hilton Head Island Rescue Squad in 1993. The main force of the Special
Operations Group is assigned to the station and we share the building with the Bureau of Fire Prevention.

When you enter their main page....... find and click on the image of the station
(shown above) and learn what equipment is housed there..... and why it's called the Icehouse.

These guys are tough..... I have never seen firefighters that can lift their ladder truck !!.... Check it out.

emergencies involving water rescue, structural or
excavation collapse, confined spaces,
vehicle or machinery entrapment,
hazardous materials releases and rope rescue.
......... Follow the links to their pics and info.


At the top of the Truck 6 main page you will see a link button to the
Hilton Head Fire/Rescue unofficial web group- streaming video!
I watched a few of these and they were fun. I thought the guys were kind of mild when it came to their
eating habits but it would appear that they don't allow them to use sharp objects... IE knives and forks.

The first time I visited this site I was using a older version of Netscape and it sort of ran away on me.
If this happens to you ... don't panic... let the page load and it is still very easy to figure out.
The main page is set to a wide screen resolution so you will scroll a little if you are set at 800X600 or less.
This is a fun site to look around and they have great equipment !! I'm sure you will enjoy it !!
Rescue-Net is proud to feature this great department !! ..... Stay Safe HHI F&R !!
Take your time looking around their site and enjoy your visit.
