Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue

This afternoon Cornelius Rescue 4, Engine 4 and Davidson Engine 2 and Ladder 1 responded to I77 Southbound for a single vehicle accident with entrapment. E4, R4 and Medic arrived and found one car that had been penetrated by two guardrails with heavy front end damage to the vehicle. All crews worked to provide patient care, remove the guardrails from the vehicle and then begin removing the mangled vehicle from around the patient. Units arrived at 16:06 and the patient was freed at 16:21 - fifteen minutes after arriving. Two Cornelius firemen assisted Mecklenburg EMS Agency - Medic with transport to the hospital. ...

thank you for doing what you do

Jane Rattigan Tarney

Thank you, for all that you do.

Glad the person is ok! But that guard rail should not be penetrating the car like that. Tennessee is facing a big lawsuit because they intentionally wanted to cut cost and left out a single part to prevent guard rails from doing this.

Angelo A Lorusso Jr

I sure hope the driver is going to be ok. By the looks of the impact, he was probably going way too fast on wet roads in a construction zone.

How did someone walk away from this? Hope they are ok? Thank for all you do!

Thank you for all the hard work

Thank you!!

Mark Marske

Prayers for all involved.

Thank you all for saving the driver’s life!

Today Cornelius Fireboat 4, Denver Fire Department and East Lincoln Fire Department conducted a water supply operation evaluation for the NC OSFM. After years of planning our Fire Boats will be certified by the North Carolina Office of the State Fire Marshal as a water supply option for land based fire apparatus during structural firefighting. Many of the hydrants along the lake front do not supply adequate gallons per minute for firefighting operations in large lake front homes. Cornelius, Denver and East Lincoln Fire Departments have signed an automatic mutual aid agreement stating that if a structure fire is within 1000 feet of the water front a Fire Boat will be automatically dispatched to supply water. Todays evaluation was a timed event from which East Lincoln E33 and Denver FireBoat 13 arrived, laid a supply line and establish a patent water supply. FB13 and E33 were able to flow 2000gpm during the test. Cornelius FireBoat 4 was able to flow 2600gpm in a separate evolution. This new certified water supply option will be used when calculating needed fire flows during our ISO inspection that was held last week.

Cornelius firefighters would like to thank the Galway Hooker Irish Pub for providing lunch to the crews today. The food was phenomenal and the ping pong competition was stellar, however, the FD was successful at defending the home turf. Thank you to the owners and staff of “The Hooker”.

This training let's the firefighters work through some of the problems found in houses with tight floor plans. Cornelius Firefighters could be faced with any house at anytime of the day. This is why you will see firefighters in Cornelius walking through buildings and practicing different skills. Don't be alarmed, come ask questions and we will be happy to explain it to you. Adapting and overcoming issues like these on the fly is what makes your Cornelius Firefighters the best. ... See MoreSee Less

At 0435 Cornelius and Huntersville Fire were dispatched to a wreck southbound 77 before exit 25, on the way to the call our dispatch advised a tractor trailer was involved and on fire. Cornelius E4 arrived and advised the accident/fire was actually at exit 28 southbound. Crews stretched two lines and applied foam due to the diesel fuel that was burning on the roadway and in the saddle tanks. Huntersville Rescue 1 arrived and assisted with manpower. Cornelius Engine 3 arrived and gave E4 their water as there are no hydrants on I77. Command also requested a tanker from Huntersville and Davidson to assist with water supply, which they did. All fire units cleared the scene at 0630

The driver and passenger self-extricated after the wreck and were fine.

Wow! Did you take this video? Fox 46 Charlotte and other Fox-affiliated entities would like to use your dancing video on all of our platforms until further notice. Is that OK? Do we also need anyone else’s permission? Thank you!!

The 2nd and Final day of the Lake Norman Public Safety School has come to an end. Today crews worked through scenarios to find lost boaters, and deal with boat accidents and missing people. All agencies worked together seamlessly today to work through these scenarios. Most of these departments don't work with each other but maybe once or twice a year but training kicks in and the work is completed perfectly. Thanks to all of the participants this year. ...

Good job guys! As always.

Annual pump testing completed today by our friends at Lesslie Welding and Fabrication INC. Lesslie does onsite pump testing at your fire station making the logistics of pump testing much easier on the department.

The crews responded for a tug and barge taking on water. Ultimately the barge and excavator on it sunk. The operators were safe and able to cut the tug free in time. Waves on the lake were reaching 4 feet in spots today, something that only happens once or twice a year. This was due to the 30 mph sustained winds gusting to almost 50 mph. ... See MoreSee Less

I am glad to see the tug got free. Mother nature takes what she wants!!!

Cornelius Lemley Fire Rescue crews are currently working a House Fire in the 21000 Block of Catawba Ave. The crews faced heavy storage in the attic making it hard to find and suppress the fire. During the offensive attack a Mayday was declared on the 2nd floor. That Firefighter was located and extricated quickly thanks to the efforts of the crews inside. The Firefighter was transported to the hospital for observation and is reported to be in stable condition. Crews will be on scene for several more hours with Catawba Avenue being shut down. Davidson Fire and Huntersville Fire are also on the scene assisting.Image attachment
