With demolition under way at Shelter Cove Mall, members of the state's Regional Response Team 4 -- which includes Bluffton and Hilton Head Island firefighters -- practiced urban search and rescue drills in the debris Thursday morning.

Hilton Head Island Fire & Rescue Division spokeswoman Joheida Fister said some of the drills include cutting through metal beams, concrete and brick to simulate rescue scenarios.
