Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue
During Hurricane Florence we were able to staff 2 Engine Companies, Brush 6 and we cross staffed H&L44 and Rescue 4 from Friday until Monday morning. We greatly appreciate the men that staffed the station, some of which worked multiple shifts in a row. 

We would also like the thank the numerous citizens and businesses that provided us with hot meals, snacks and drinks. Unfortunately we do not know everyone’s name but we do know Pat Jackson, Anette Powell, Sarah Cichocki, Beyond Decadence, COWBOY STEAK • CHICKEN • RIBS and the gentleman from Bluff Point Rd.  

We would like to thank you ALL for looking out for us during the storm and we ask that you all take a moment today and think about our fellow North & South Carolinians that are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Florence.Image attachmentImage attachment

The Town has been diligently preparing for Hurricane Florence this week. Crews from all Town departments will be on standby to respond, should the need arise and as soon as conditions allow. A few important pieces of information to keep in mind.

- Please only call 9-1-1 in a true emergency situation.
- If you lose power, please contact your electric company. High water and debris can conceal down power lines and other hazards. DO NOT drive over or stand near downed power lines.
- @DukeEnergy customers can report outages by texting “OUT” to 57801 or visit the Duke Energy website at www.duke-energy.com/outages.
- Electricities asks you to report power outages online at cornelius.electricities.org/report-an-outage/.
- Energy United customers may report outages online at www.energyunited.com/ or call 1-800-EUNITED (1-800-386-4833).

- The closest open shelter to Cornelius is North Mecklenburg High School (11201 Old Statesville Road, Huntersville, NC).
- Please call the non-emergency police number, 704-892-1363 for assistance with storm-related, non-life threatening situations.

As our community prepares for the potential impact of Hurricane Florence, we encourage all residents to prepare now by taking the following precautions:

- Ensure you have food, water, and medications for each person in your home for several days.
- Be ready for power, utility, and phone service outages. Keep your mobile phones charged.
- Have a communication plan in place. Remember that during disasters, sending text messages is usually reliable and faster than making phone calls as phone lines are often overloaded.
- Refill your gas tank and stock your vehicle with emergency supplies and a change of clothes.
- Bring patio furniture and garbage cans inside; they could become dangerous in high winds.
- Have enough cash on hand to last several days.

Be observant and stay safe. Watch for fast moving water and flooded roads. Do NOT drive around barricades or through high water. Remember, #TurnAroundDontDrown.

Check our website, cornelius.org, for additional resources.

Most importantly, stay safe.

Weather reports indicate the the edge of Florence will move into our area tonight into tomorrow. Please keep the folks on the coast in your thoughts and prayers as they are still feeling the effects.

Remember, if you encounter flooded streets, please TURN AROUND!

Your Cornelius Fire Department is staffed with extra personnel throughout the weekend...if you need us, we’ll be there!! Stay Safe!

Today the Annual 9/11 Remembrance Vigil was held at the Cornelius 9/11 Memorial at Fire Station 1. We were honored to have members from the FDNY, FDNY EMS and NYPD in attendance along with our fellow citizens. Today was truly a special event for us and we thank everyone who attended.

A special thanks goes to Mayor Woody Washam, Commissioner Bilodeau and Town Manager Andrew Grant for their attendance. We would also like to thank Bob Lazar (DJ Bob) for providing the sound system for the ceremony. #NeverForget

Does this have to do with the utility work that was being done on Friday? Was a mistake made causing this?

Cornelius firefighters had a pretty busy Friday.  Firefighters responded to 13 calls for service and completed their annual NFPA physicals throughout the day. Engine 3 also attended the last day of Summer Camp at the Lake Norman YMCA and sprayed the children. In between calls during the evening the crew from Station 1 also completed some new driver training with Engine 5. It was a busy but good day in #CORNTOWN

Special thanks to our neighbors at station 2. They provided the duty crews with a great meal tonight! We were happy to show the kids around the firehouse and equipment. Station 2 sits in a residential area and we are always happy to meet the families we share this area with!

A severe thunderstorm rolled into the North End of Mecklenburg County this evening bringing eight calls for service in a one hour and thirty minute time frame. The most severe call was for multiple sail boats overturned with an unknown amount of people in the water at Blythe Landing. Huntersville Fire Department responded by land to Blythe Landing and Cornelius Fireboat 4 and Cornelius Police Department Marine 1 & 4 responded by water. Upon arrival all units found civilians assisting in the rescue. FireBoat 4 and Cornelius PD assisted with removing subjects from the water, checking numerous overturned sailboats and searching the shoreline for patients. Huntersville Fire made contact with the Sailboat Club and ascertained a roster to ensure all people were accounted for with no injuries. In all 23 people were rescued.

Cornelius answered calls for a house struck by lightning, numerous trees down in roadways and on a house and the sailboat incident. WBTV News WSOC-TV NBC Charlotte

What brand did you go with and what was your deciding factor?

I showed curtis this when he came up. This load is very popular in maryland. Im not sure if it would work in your boxes though

#THATKEYTRUID AND #LOWHOSEBED 😍😍😍

Making it about them. Well done gentlemen.

You firefighters are awesome!

What was the verdict?

Your 2” - Did you go with 1.5 or 2.5” couplings?

Wish I had known !!! Wonderful hose!!!

Truid is great hose... we’ve had our 1 year and are satisfied with our new setup

This afternoon your Cornelius Lemley firefighters practiced a worse case scenario. Most of our largest residences in our town are located on the lakefront. Paired with this is the fact that these hydrants are low flow moving only 250 to 500 gallons a minute. Cornelius Lemley purchased Fireboat 4 almost 10 years ago and its built for jobs just like this. Today Fireboat 4 pumped 2,000 gallons a minute to Engine 4 which was 120 feet up a steep incline/cliff. This evolution really hits home as the neighbor to our test site today is our largest house on the lake and the highest, 140 feet vertical from the lake and 39,800 square feet of heated space. ...

You guys are doing an amazing job! Congratulations

Strong work folks

Denny’s?

Great job. Protect the exposure. Any thought of mandating sprinklers for homes over a certain threshold?

Didn’t know you could pump from boat to engine

Great job. You are amazing as always and I really appreciate each and everyone of you.

Shon Broedell

What size hose is hooked up to the boat??

Beast mode 💪!!!! I have seen that boat first hand at work and it’s awesome.

Who’s house ?

Way to go team! Beside training, this has to be fun.

Denny Hamlin’s “White House” 👍😎👍

If the homeowner can afford the multi-million dollar mcmansion, they should have thought about voluntarily protecting lives and that investment with a residential sprinkler sprinkler system.

I love our firefighters.

Prachi Mahajani Powelll

Great job. Good to practice worse case scenarios.

HYDRAULICS TELL ME DISCHARGE FROM THE LAKE MIGHT HAVE BEEN 2000 GPM, BUT DEPENDING ON THE DISTANCE AND ELEVATION THEY MIGHT CONSIDER PUTTING IN A DRY HYDRANT AND RELAY PUMP FROM THE LAKE.

How long can you pump uninterrupted at that volume do you think before needing to stop and refuel if you are full when leaving Fire Boat 4's dock?

That is Denny Hamlin's house

Denny Hamlin??? Miller’s all time favorite house. Cannot wait to show him your post. He always likes to go by when we are at Gan and Papa’s house ❤️ Denny is the reason he wants a “modern” house when he grows up. Thank you for all that you do Ballew!!! We love ya man.

Love the Corneliius firefighters...always striving to be better!!
