The Lady’s Island-St. Helena Fire District is nearing completion of the renovation project at one of our St. Helena Stations. Station 22 located at Sea Island Parkway and Fripp Point road has been under renovations for the last several months. We anticipate completion of the upgrade by December 1st 2015.
The renovation included a complete upgrade of the living space. With the changes we elevated the floor above flood plain, installed hydraulic flood gates throughout the facility, installed a fire alarm and a fire protection sprinkler system, upgraded all electrical and plumbing, all to meet existing codes. The renovated living space will now have individual sleeping quarters, exercise room new kitchen and bathroom facilities. The appearance of the exterior of the station and main entrance was changed to face Sea Island Parkway.
This station is home to 5 personnel 24 hours a day, 3 firefighters and 2 EMS personnel. The Fire District runs a 3-man engine company out of this station and it also houses our 2nd ladder truck. EMS unit #5 responds from this station with 2 personnel.
