Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue
This afternoon Cornelius was dispatched to an outside fire off of Carrington Club Dr. While enroute there was a large amount of smoke in the area and there were reports that there was landscaping and a roofing structure involved. The call was upgraded to a structure fire adding H&L44, Davidson Engine 1 and Huntersville Engine 2. Upon arrival a trash can, grill, landscaping area and a pergola were found to be on fire. Engine 2 quickly extinguished the fire and cancelled everyone but H&L44. #CORNTOWN   @ Cornelius, North CarolinaImage attachmentImage attachment

The drill for the month of February is Forcible entry. Cornelius Fireman are drilling on inward and outward swinging door FE as well as thru the lock for non destructive entry means. So far we’ve forced approximately 240 doors and still have several days to go! Ps: if you drive by and see smoke coming from the firehouse, it’s fake smoke for training. @ Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue ... See MoreSee Less

Cornelius-Lemley FD - Received Chief Barbee's letter in the mail today. My family's donation is in the mail. As a professional that works with fire departments across the East Coast I know all fire departments are not created equal. I hope all the residents of Cornelius know how lucky we are to have your department answering our emergency needs! ... See MoreSee Less

PSA: when piling your leaves at the curb for pick up please avoid covering fire hydrants. In the middle of the night this can become almost impossible to see. Thank you for your cooperation.

Yes this is townhomes and the owners have zero say in who the HOA hires or when to expect services to be scheduled

I don't get these HOA paid blowers who blow everyone's leaves in the street...then just leave them there. I've driven down the same street for a wk. Leaves still there. Except when it is really windy, and some of those leaves are right back in homeowners' yards.

The landscapers have been doing it and just leaving them there. Its horrible!

Great reminder. Sometimes you don’t think about that.

Common sense is a flower that doesn't grow in everyone's garden.

William Kearnes

If this is by the town homes then landmark did it and will suck them up today...supposedly

So think about this. Your tax dollars pay for the leaf vacuuming service. If you hire a landscaper, your service fee typically includes hauling debris away (like when they prune trees/shrubs). So if your landscape service is not taking the leaves away, you’re in essence paying twice. Talk to your landscapers to understand exactly what you’re paying for.
