Too nice not to share. T4 shining this morning. The rig will turn 25 years old this year and is still a corner stone in our response plan.

I hope you guys found the antique cast iron ladder truck by the side door the other day. As well as the 911 book and flask. Stay safe.

That’s because it’s a rear mount aerial single axle. An FDNY dream machine it was the one rig in a 25 year career that was fast, efficient and always got the aerial up at jobs. Much continued good luck with her.

I don’t know if she looks better now, or when she was brand new!

Mentoring new members is an important job for senior members of the department. Informal sessions like this can be found in either firehouse on a daily basis. Here, FF Rivers is going over the basics of our air packs with a Jr member.

That's what makes such a great brotherhood.

Sam is the man!

I remember when Sam was the Jr. member being taught airpack basics.

Well 2020, you got us too.  We were a little slower than the past couple years, to the tune of about 600 calls.  From May-September, a response plan was updated to remove first responders county wide from “Charlie” level EMS calls. In order to maintain response times to our citizens, the response guidelines were returned to normal mid-September.  2021 is shaping up to be a busy one, we are 28 calls in on the first 3 days of the year.

Today E4 assisted the Mecklenburg County FMO with a standpipe test. This is critical equipment that must be relied upon in the event of a fire. It’s not everyday you get to stretch a line and flow water from a multi million dollar condo.Image attachment

Early this morning Cornelius and Huntersville Fire Department were dispatched to a reported abandoned house on fire at the intersection of Statesville Rd and Rich Hatchet Rd. Mount Mourne FD Deputy Chief Robbins was in the area and found a single story home in a wooded area heavily involved in fire. Huntersville Engine 2 arrived on scene and assumed Command and began attacking the fire. Units on scene made quick work of the fire and cleared shortly after the investigation was completed by the Mecklenburg County FMO.Image attachment

Single MVA? Did they hit the concrete supports for the bridge?

Y’all do good work out there. Thank you! Stay safe 🙏

Strong work boys

Horrific. The aggressiveness of people driving in that area, even on weekends is ridiculous.

Faith Xiong that was the 1st accident I was telling u about. Not the one we seen on our way home.

Praying for all those involved

I'm sure I'm not the only one that always zooms in to make sure it's not my kid. Prayers. 🙌 Because everybody is somebody's kid.

Stop being on the phone and driving! Prayers up

Praying for all involved 🙏🏻

That is just horrible! Thank God for the work your son does!

You really have to know your “stuff” when setting up the attack. The pumpers, tankers, ladder trucks. Great job guys.

At 5:15 this evening Davidson and Cornelius were alerted for a house fire on Ralph Knox Rd in Davidson. Davidson Car 5 arrived on scene with a working fire. E5 and R4 responded assisting with suppression and RIT. Narrow road access and no hydrants were an issue but quickly overcome with aggressive tactics.Image attachment

Great job. Practice makes perfect especially when dealing with a poor access issue and having to make quick decisions.

E4 & E6 responded to an outside gas leak this afternoon.  The leak took about a 1.5 hrs to bring under control due to the gas line being in a hole with other damaged utilities.  No injuries occurred during this operation.Image attachment

Overnight Engine 4 & Rescue 4 were sent to a vehicle accident on Chartown Dr. While enroute the call was upgraded to an entrapment and the location was changed to I77. Engine 4 arrived, confirmed the entrapment and began patient care on multiple patients. Rescue 4 began extrication. Cornelius 9 arrived, assumed command and requested an Engine Company from Davidson & @huntersville_fd for patient care. Three patients were entrapped, two were ejected and one was walking wounded. A total of six Medic trucks and one EMS Supervisor responded from Medic. All patients were transported as priority 2. ... See MoreSee Less

That why you’re #1 in my book. On the call whenever. Wherever.

Duty crews took advantage of a beautiful Carolina day to train on some of the non-fire uses of our ladder company.  Crews set up our “short haul”  most commonly used in removing a patient that could have been injured on a commercial roof. While training, stations 1 and 2 and Davidson station 1 responded to a kitchen fire in downtown Cornelius. Luckily the homeowner had working smoke detectors! #corntownImage attachment

We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped our crews today. Traditionally, our crews would invite and have family to the firehouse to fellowship and eat. This year is obviously much different. Special thanks to Sarah Thomas and family for helping organize and serve food today. Lake Norman Financial and Sweet Cakes provided some excellent deserts! To top it off the Antiquity neighborhood raised money for a donation. We truly serve the best community and are extremely grateful. ... See MoreSee Less

Truck 4 And Rescue 4 responded I-77 N prior to Exit 30 for a Multi vehicle MVC with reported Pin-In.

Truck 4 arrived first and established command of a 6 Car MVC with one confirmed entrapment and multiple patients.

Rescue 4 and Truck 4 were assigned extrication and stabilization. Davidson Engines 1 & 2 arrived and were assigned patient care.

The patient was freed in 9 minutes and all patient care transferred to medic for evaluation and transport.

Truck 4 remains on scene awaiting SHP. Only one lane of travel is open on I-77 at this time.

My boyfriend has been at a standstill around mm 24 heading north, for about 30 minutes now.

Great work guys!

I’m not surprised in this area. We live off exit 28 and driving on 77 from exit 23-36 looks like a kids video game. Nobody knows how to drive in this 13 mile section of road, it’s ridiculous. Drivers not knowing how to merge properly and people deciding to suddenly slow to 50 right over the lake and stay slow till exit 23. I’m not saying that’s what caused this wreck but I definitely have seen some of the worst driving I have ever seen in this stretch of road.

Brianna Marino

Great work Cade Caudle!

Candice Myers Bailey George

Thanks for a great job ❤️

Looks like driving too fast, following too close...😐

Great work Guys

Driving in a straight line and not running into any other cars is hard. 😑 I feel like this was probably a combination of people tailgating+not paying attention to the road (like...at all). Hope everyone is okay, but certainly frustrating for something like this to eff up traffic for hours when it’s so.avoidable. to begin with. 🤦🏼‍♀️

How do people do it? Clear skies, no rain, beautiful day...it takes talent to f*** up driving under those conditions🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🙄

Strong work guys!!!

Hopefully everyone is okay 🙏

When does people just driving and put the phon away?? It goes worse and worse. Auto insurance doesn’t like that.

Betty R Buff

Too busy looking at the lake while driving by.

Aaron Davis

Absolute selfish crap drivers!

No surprise here. Terrible merging onto 77 N from exit 28. Get two or more 53’ trucks in the right lane, or add some double trailers, dump trucks, pickups, RVs, giant vehicles like Suburbans, it leaves no time or room to merge in. The white wall of plastic sticks doesn’t help. 77 both directions is a badly designed and constructed roadway from Charlotte to Mooresville. Mix in Tailgating, distracted driving, selfish driving, speeding, and jitterbugging, and it’s an accident waiting to happen. Watch drivers enter and leave the toll lanes in heavy traffic; nightmare.
