The Head Start program asked Hanahan Police and Fire to come to their Public Safety Day and Fishburne Elementary School. Children ages 3-5 received from first-hand knowledge on how a fire truck works, what a police dog can do and how all of the lights and sirens work. It was a great day for not only the children, but for the City of Hanahan Employees that got to attend.
Thanks to a donation from Walmart, Chief Bowers and Assitant Chief Bargeron; today Tower 2701’s crew installed a device to aid a local resident who has mobility issues. With this device, the resident is able to get in and out of the recliner without assistance.
Please use caution when driving on Henry Brown Blvd. The Hanahan Police Department along with the Hanahan Fire Department have closed traffic down to one lane due to a traffic incident in the area. Crews are working to remove a vehicle from the woods.
Pleas avoid the area of Stonehenge Drive and Cardiff Street in Hanahan due to a gas leak.
