As with many events this year, Fire Prevention week will look different. In the past we have served up pancakes at our Fire Prevention Pancake breakfast, and visited schools and other facilities to spread the message. This year we had to decide on another activity that will keep everyone distanced and safe. Hilton Head Island Fire Rescue would like to encourage all residents to participate in the live scavenger hunt beginning October 10th, 2020.

Here’s what to do to participate:

  • Go to your phone’s app store and load the GooseChase app on your smartphone or other mobile device (it’s free)
  • Choose the Fire Rescue Island Safety Quest. 

We have assembled 30 missions (fire safety, life safety and just for fun) that can be done in your home, your neighborhood, or out in the Hilton Head Island community. The hunt will run from October 10th to October 30th.

Each mission is assigned points based on the level of difficulty and you can check your status on the leaderboard at any time. Top winners will win a prize. So load the app on your phone now and you will be notified on October 10th at 8 am that you can begin! Happy hunting!

We would like to promote this event as much as possible, please contact Cinda if you have any questions.
