Hook & Ladder 44s crew took advantage of a beautiful Friday evening to conduct some new driver drills and ground ladder drills in the district. Training on buildings specific to our area allows us to gain knowledge of buildings prior to an emergency. ... See MoreSee Less

Oh yea, ground ladder drills. I remember them when I was with the Perry Twp Volunteer Fire Dept. Back in Ohio. That’s when find out good of shape you’re in.

For the month of May, we’re conducting training on ladder pipe operations and master streams. With our Seagrave Fire Apparatus Tractor Drawn Aerial in town, we’re fortunate to be surrounded by different types of ladders within our mutual aid departments. This morning, Town of Davidson, NC -- Town Hall Fire Department brought their brand new Tower Ladder to training with us so we could understand the differences and capabilities of that truck. We setup and flowed water from both trucks during the evolutions. We’re thankful for our great partnerships around us. ... See MoreSee Less

Station 1 members received a call this morning for a citizens assist in the Heritage Green community. When they arrived, they discovered two kittens that were 2 weeks old were trapped in the engine compartment of a car. Witnesses said that the mother cat carried them in there. Our crews disassembled the underside of the car (skid plate) to get the kittens freed up after about 45 minutes. All kittens were safe and reunited with their owner. #corntown ... See MoreSee Less

Over the last two days members have been attending a joint training exercise with our lake partners. Today we conducted a large scale scenario involving the Carolina Grace (a large event boat). We have seen an increased number of boats on the water as the weather improves. We encourage everyone to please be safe on the lake this summer. ... See MoreSee Less

Members at Station 1 on the Eastside, took advantage of this beautiful Saturday to conduct some spring cleaning of the firehouse.

Our members are in the firehouse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. We spend nearly 1/3 of our lives in the firehouse. Because of that, we like to take pride in our house just like it’s our own.

I don’t think most people know all that you do! I’ve learned a lot - also by attending some of your educational sessions.

Good job guys. As they used to say, “A place for everything and everything on its place.

Try spending 2/3rds of your life in a truck. Much more confined that a firehouse. We get no respect

This is a reminder that the Duke Energy sirens at McGuire Nuclear Station and Catawba Nuclear Station will be tested today, Wednesday, April 13, 2022 between 11:00a.m. and 1:00p.m. Similarly to January’s test, this will sound for 5 to 30 seconds and will not be a full volume test which means some residents in the 10 mile Emergency Planning Zones may not hear it unless they are close to a siren. This means that some residents who would have typically heard the full volume tests conducted many not hear it today. In the past, the quarterly test was performed at full volume. Beginning this year, the first three quarterly tests are not conducted at full volume and the fourth quarter test will be full volume. No action is needed – this is for your situational awareness.

Overnight, Engine 4 responded with Huntersville Fire Department to Interstate 77 for a motor vehicle accident. A few minutes later, the call was upgraded to a pin-in, bringing Rescue 4 to the scene. Arriving crews confirmed that one patient was pinned inside the vehicle. 

A medical helicopter from MedCenter Air was requested to the scene for transport due to severity of injuries. 

Engine 4 and Rescue 4 operated for about an hour before returning to service.  Thanks to Huntersville for the photos.Image attachment

Huntersville Engine 1 arrived with a working fire. Cornelius Engine 6 arrived and secured our own water supply and assisted with extinguishment and overhaul. Huntersville Tower 1 operated on the roof; opening roof hatches for ventilation. Engine 6 operated on scene for just over an hour before being released. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you Corn Town! You always have our back. Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue

The black smoke was crazy. Ty for your hard work!

Thanks 🙏 👏👏

Today is the day!  We’ll see everyone in a few hours to celebrate the careers of Chance and Terry!

Today is the day! We’ll see everyone in a few hours to celebrate the careers of Chance and Terry!We would like to invite the public to join us in celebrating the careers of two of our longtime firefighters. The celebration will be:
April 2nd, 2022 from 1pm-5pm at Cornelius Fire Station 1 (19729 S. Main Street)

Terry Mayhew joined in 1985 and served our department for 36.5 years. Terry has always been an extremely dedicated member both volunteer and an on a paid basis. Cornelius has always been known for having aggressive firemen that would go above and beyond to ensure that the incident was handled quickly and professionally. Terry was one of the original Cornelius hard chargers at any fire scene in the northern end of Mecklenburg County – if it was burning you could guarantee he would be there and most likely finding his way to the nozzle.

Chance Osborne joined in 1993 and served our department for 28 years. Chance was also one of the firefighters that set Cornelius apart from all the other departments during his time here. Prior to paid members you could often find Chance at the Station manning the rigs at all times of the day. In fact, there were many times that calls might not have been answered if Chance wasn’t here. Chance was one of the first part-time paid firefighters in 2000 and was a solid, steady, dependable fireman for those 22 years.
