Vernon Edenfield of the Bluffton Township Fire District uses a search camera to look for mock victims trapped under the wreckage of the Hilton Head Island Fire and Rescue Division's old Station 1. The station was partially demolished and is being used for urban search and rescue training by Hilton Head and other area firefighters. The training scenario is that a tornado has struck the building, partially collapsing it and leaving 26 victims trapped inside. The training will continue through Friday, after which the building will be completely demolished and a new Station 1 will begin to rise on the site next to Shipyard Plantation's Pope Avenue gate.
