As of late we’ve seen an increase in accidents involving first responders along highways...fortunately we have not experienced any here, locally. We urge you please remember to #MoveOver as you approach our scenes for a responder stopped along the side of the roadway (includes police, fire, Medic, tow trucks, roadside assistance vehicles and highway workers).
Please do your part to help us make it home safe at the end of the shift!
NC Legislators are working on increasing penalties for those that do not move over for first responders. #OneTownOneTeam #Huntersville #HuntersvilleFD #HuntersvilleNC

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.
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.
