This week we have had the privilege of honoring a local fallen hero. Mooresville Police Officer Jordan Sheldon lost his life in the Line of Duty last weekend.

Wednesday our Engine 6 moved up to Mooresville Station 2 so they could attend a community vigil to remember Officer Sheldon.

Today H&L44 and Engine 2 proudly displayed the United States flag during the procession on the Westmoreland Rd bridge while Rescue 4 and Engine 6 honored the procession over I-77 on the Catawba Ave bridge.

RIP Sir #neverforget

On April 29, 2019 Cornelius Fire Rescue attended the funeral of one of our former members, Newton Alexander Smith, III age 54. Alex passed away at his home on April 26. 

Alex became a member of our department in 1985 and served faithfully until moving to Claremont, NC in 2001. Alex was not only a dedicated firefighter but he also served as the committee chairperson for the first Ladder Company to ever serve in the Town of Cornelius. Alex played a monumental role in bringing aerial operations into our department. 

Alex was the older brother of our Fire Chief Neal Smith. To say the two men were close is an understatement. Please keep the entire Smith family in your thoughts prayers.

Final day of Public Safety Boat Class is a wrap. Today we completed single boat drills as well as large scale incidents involving multiple agencies. Special thanks to Steve Chapmon from Complete Mobile Marine for his donation of a large cabin cruiser. This prop really added some challenges and identified some equipment needs for agencies. Thanks to everyone that came out! Plans are already in the works for next year.Image attachmentImage attachment

Today we keep Ed and Michael Kennedy in our hearts and in our thoughts. May people never forget the sacrifice they made and all that they gave up helping others. And to honor them, today I’m starting a “$5 for 5 years” campaign and I think that a $500 goal is fitting. Money raised through this fundraiser will be split with the Last Call Foundation in Memory of Fallen Firefighter Michael Kennedy to help support the amazing work that Kathy Crosby-Bell has been doing to protect fire fighters and to prevent another tragedy like the Back Bay Fire of 3/26/14.

Thank you for helping us keep their memories alive and allowing us to continue their legacies of helping others.

At 04:20 Cornelius and Huntersville firefighters were dispatched to a structure fire in the Admirals Quarters Condominium Complex. Upon arrival Cornelius Engine 4 found a three story condo with heavy fire visible from the 3rd floor and roof. The call was upgraded to a Working Fire and additional units were requested from Davidson Stations 1 & 2 and Huntersville Station 1. Due to the close proximity to Lake Norman Denver Fire Boat 13 was requested.

Cornelius Engine 4 personnel were able to secure their own water supply and begin fire suppression. Crews advanced a 2” attack line to the third floor and began hitting the fire. Huntersville Engine 2 began a primary search. Cornelius Engine 6 arrived and assisted with suppression, H&L44 arrived and set up the aerial for master stream operations. Davidson Engine 3 arrived and established a water supply to H&L44.

Due to the size of the structure and the amount of fire upon arrival a box alarm was also requested from Charlotte Fire Department.

All in all there were 18 condos in the building and all of them suffered fire and or water damage. All primary searches proved to be negative. There were two aerial master streams used and two large diameter handlines used to control the fire.

Units Responding:
Cornelius – E4, E6, H&L44, R4
Huntersville – E2, L1
Davidson – E2, E3
Charlotte – E28, L28, Batt 6, Car 8
Denver – FireBoat 13
Medic – 2ALS Units, EMS Supervisor

Given the fire volume on arrival - you all made some pivotal command and tactical decisions that made one heck of a difference....and you arrived on scene quick. Proud to run with you all. Strong work!

Great job guys!

Thank you for all your hard work to helping all people firemen, medical all first responders. God bless.

WOW! Nice work! Thankful ALL are safe.

So grateful for our well trained, experienced and committed CORNELIUS Fire Dept! Please know you are appreciated in these moments of need in our town. Prayers are with the victims and firefighters. Thankful for your good work this day and everyday! Mayor Washam

Thank you for your speedy professionalism. It’s a miracle no one or pets were hurt n that size of a fire. And glad none of you were hurt either. Fine job well done! Thank you!

Sounds and looks like an awesome attack great job.

Thanks again for everything y'all do. Very glad there were no injuries!

Thank you for your service.

Thank you all for all you do! Ashley

Good job fellas. Glad all are ok.

Im glad you guys are okay...looks likke one hell of an inferno.

Thank you firemen for all you do ,,,,👩‍🚒📛🔥🔥🔥🚒

Great job gentleman, I walked past it earlier and I'm glad everyone was safe and no injuries. There was lots of work to be done to extinguish the amount of fire damage I saw

Aw man. Hope all residents got out safely

Some of thoses structures have been there a long time now...I'm sure the insides have been updated but roofs are old and would certainly go up in flames very quick. I grew up in the area in the 70s and 80s when they were built. Hope no one got hurt.

Some friends lived there, thank you for saving their snakes too.

Pretty scary. Any word on the source of the fire?

Shortly after 5am this morning Cornelius & Huntersville Station 2 were dispatched to a reported working fire in an apartment in Station 2’s first due. Upon Engine 2’s arrival the call was upgraded to a working fire after crews found fire on the rear balconies of floor 2 & 3. The fire was quickly knocked down with no extension into the condos. Primary searches were conducted and negative. The cause is still under investigation. #corntown  @ Cornelius, North CarolinaImage attachmentImage attachment
