Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue

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

Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue

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.

Seth Cameron

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!!

Stay safe out there. Thank you for all you do.

Now i feel so bad I was just saying what a great no traffic day

😑

I hope nobody was hurt!

I read their we’re no injuries reported on twitter. Praying that’s true, scary!

Probably the only time most of those people will ever go into the toll lanes. Hopefully everyone is ok

If everyone would slow down and not travel at 70 to 80mph then we wouldn’t have as many issues

On The afternoon of July 10th firefighters were alerted for a structure fire at a dry dock storage warehouse in Station 2’s first due. Units arrived to find smoke issuing from the walls above a large garage door that was being removed from the property. Workers advised they had to use a torch to remove a steel beam causing a small fire in the wall. Firefighters worked off H&L44 and a large scissor lift to extinguish the smoldering areas and check for extension.

At 21:05 Cornelius and Huntersville Fire were dispatched to I77 SB south of Exit 28 for a reported vehicle accident with one patient pinned in the vehicle. While responding the location was changed to south bound south of Exit 30. This added Davidson Engine 4 to the call. Cornelius Hook & Ladder 44 was first to arrive finding one vehicle with heavy damage and one patient pinned by the dash. Capt McCormick assumed command and organized efforts to extricate the pt, move vehicles from the roadway to allow better access for emergency vehicles and land MedCenter Air on I77. Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville and Mecklenburg EMS worked together to successfully remove the patient and transfer the patient to MedCenter Air for transport.

What a tragedy - thank you for all of you do for our community.

Excellent work folks! Thank you for all you do!

Thank you for your ongoing and never ending work you do for our community. I feel for the first responders who have to witness these traumatic events

Great team work! Thank you

Thank your for All you've done 👍🏼 prayers for those injured.

Thank you all teams for your quick response. Waze conversations made it sound like the driver was removed from the car and the helicopter was taking off in less than 20 minutes. That’s impressive life-saving effort from our local crews and I’m thankful to live in such a great community.

Andy Stanton

Thank you. I’m so sad to see this be almost a daily occurrence on I77 where people are pinned in from a crash. I too am sorry you have to see this so much. And I’m sure your quick actions save lives. God Bless you all.

Absolutely one of the best fire departments in the state

Thank you Cornelius Lemley

Team work is dream work!

#i77deathtrap

Thank you for all that you do. Please stay safe.

And this is life as we know it in LKN, NC. I’m sharing with my family and friends up north so they won’t want to move here. NCDOT is the cause of our problems.

Thank you for all you do! Sadly so much of it is on 77....

Thank you Cornelius Lemley for your hard work and great team work. I appreciate each of you.

Thank you all! I’m grateful for every call you respond to. I’m know this was much harder one. The community is blessed to have you.

Brittany Liberty Page

All first responders involved were amazing. It was unreal how quick they got there considering the construction barriers and the fact they either had to take Exit 30 through the ensuing traffic jam or run on foot into oncoming traffic from Exit 28. Much respect

Thank you for all that you do!!!

You all are heroes!

SAFETY FIRST always wear a life jacket when out on the water.

As @Charlotte Fire Department, Charlotte NC and other crews continue to search for 2 missing boaters on Lake Norman they urge boaters to follow a safety checklist before going out on the water and while out on the water.

*Be Mindful of your surrounds
*Learn to swim
*wear a life jacket
*have a throw flotation device
*consider boat like a car - don't drink have a designated operator
*have a fire extinguisher on board
*make sure operation lights work
*never overload your boat
*stay well hydrated
*pay attention to all warning signs, buoys and markers
*never dive head first into water where you can't see the bottom
*supervise all children while swimming
