ATTENTION:

There is a large mulch pile in the area of Chartwell Center Drive that has been on fire since yesterday. The fire is contained to the pile, however this pile is producing a good amount of smoke throughout town. We have been in contact with the Supervisors of the site as well as other agencies; and we are working to mitigate this issue. You will notice smoke throughout the area, but please do not call 911 about this. We are aware.

I’m pissed!!!!! I thought somebody was smoking some bbq!!! What a waste of good smoke.

Earlier this evening, Rescue 4 was called to assist Davidson Fire with a Motor Vehicle Accident with Pin-In near the Mecklenburg / Cabarrus County line. Rescue 4 members operated on scene for approximately 30 minutes assisting with extrication and loading of the patient before being released by Command. ... See MoreSee Less

You cannot imagine the fear in your soul when pinned in car praying for help. Then u see those lights and your heart is lifted. In minutes a team of well trained fire fighters and EMS folks are in the car with you as they cut it open. As they slide the neck brace and back board under u as you are slowly and so very carefully removed from the car, well there are no words for the gratitude you have for these people. And then u are in an ambulance and never ever get to know their names. Thanks to each and everyone who does this amazing work.

At 9:28pm last night, Cornelius was dispatched to Kings Point Marina for a boat fire. Cornelius Engine 4 arrived with nothing evident. Cornelius 14 had Command initially. Due to the length of the dock and distance away from land, Engine 4 was unable to initially see it on arrival. It was quickly upgraded to a working fire, adding Davidson Engine 1 and Tanker 1. Cornelius 9 arrived and assumed Command, giving Cornelius 14 suppression. Engine 4s crew and H&L44s crew stretched 700’ of hand lines to reach the fire. Engine 6 caught the hydrant and laid in to Engine 4 to establish a water supply. The fire was controlled and is under investigation by the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office. ...

Thank you ALL for your service to the community safe. While this is a sad situation and a loss for those involved, it could have been far worse.

Thank you for all you do.

You got a love and respect the guys that run to a fire instead of away from it

We’ve partnered up with our mutual aid lake agencies; Huntersville Fire Department and East Lincoln Fire Department to provide training this month on new GIS software for Lake Norman. This invaluable software is a huge asset to us and provides much better interoperability between our agencies. We were able to use it last week on the drowning near marker R4, and it worked seamlessly. ... See MoreSee Less

The #July4th weekend is historically one of the busiest weekends for us as a department and as a community.  While we celebrate this weekend, please remember that fireworks that shoot up into the sky are illegal in North Carolina. Keep your family safe by taking precautions. 

This weekend, along with Memorial Day Weekend are our 2 busiest lake holidays on #LKN. Boaters will be out in full force, along with inexperienced and intoxicated boaters.  Always wear your #PFD when you’re on the water.  It will save your life. 

We hope that everyone celebrates responsibly and enjoys this holiday weekend!Image attachment

Effective July 1, 2022 Deputy Chief Fox and Captain Amadeo are passing on the responsibilities of their positions in the Command Staff with Cornelius-Lemley Fire Department. Both men have served these positions for many years and have provided a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to the department.  Our department has gone through some major changes during their tenure in office, and both men endured that and provided guidance and feedback during those changes.   Both men plan on remaining active with the department, just in different roles.  Help us congratulate both of them on their accomplishments as Officers!Image attachment

Please consider donating to the Carolina Brotherhood- Honoring The Fallen & Their Families. They’re starting Day 4 of the 2022 Ride today. 

The mission of the Carolina Brotherhood is to provide emotional and financial support for the families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty from the Carolinas. The organization builds awareness and appreciation of the sacrifice these extraordinary individuals have made, and seek to honor their memory.

This event began after Captain Jeff Bowen of the Asheville Fire Department died in the line of duty July 28, 2011. Following his death, a group of firefighter and police officers decided to cycle from Wilmington to Asheville to honor him. Since then, the ride has grown each year and focus on line of duty awareness, honoring those lost in the line of duty, and providing support as needed.Image attachment

What an exciting time. These FFs will likely be the future leadership of a full career dept someday. That's too bad The FFs won't get a 457K... Will the town someday absorb the FD as a town entity as opposed to the FD being a private company?

isn’t Firefighter 1&2 a national certification not state certification

36k is absurdly low

Matthew Philip want to move here 👍🏻 I’ll even babysit

I'm retired and thousands of miles away, assholes

Look, I get it, Facebook ads are very affordable; but I wonder if it's really productive to run this nationwide, including in my Pennsylvania feed?

FULL TIME ? WHAT DO THEY DO ?
