Do you have a list of such companies in the Cornelius area?

With Thanksgiving behind us, and everyone focusing on Christmas now, allow us to remind you of some simple fire safety tips for this Holiday season. 

Did you know that Christmas is one of the top 3 days for home fires due to candles? 

🚨Only use decorations that are flame-retardant or not flammable.
🚨Check holiday lights each year for frayed wires or excessive wear.
🚨Don’t link more than three strands of holiday lights.
🚨Never leave a burning candle unattended. 
🚨Consider using battery-operated flameless candles.
🚨Keep your live Christmas tree away from heat sources and room exits.
🚨Water your live Christmas tree daily to keep it from becoming dry.

Happy Thanksgiving! Grateful for all of you who keep our community safe.

Wishing you all a safe Thanksgiving. Thank you for all you do

Thank you for making Cornelius safe and secure.

This week six Cornelius firemen travelled to Vestavia Hills, Alabama and participated in multiple training evolutions in a hotel slated for demolition. The Central Alabama Fire Chiefs Association along with Fire Life Training hosted the event. Our firemen had the opportunity to learn about engine company operations, specifically working off standpipes with stretching and hooking up the appropriate appliances to the valve. The men practiced moving and flowing water in hallways and hotel rooms. Firefighters were also able to actually use a Bresnan nozzle and flow water from an upper floor to a lower floor above a fire. Members also worked on searching in a coordinated team effort, forcing steel doors in steel frames and throwing ground ladders to effectively make rescues. They also practiced learning different drags and carries to remove victims from a fire.

With over 300 multi-story buildings in the Town of Cornelius this extremely rare opportunity will pay huge dividends in the future. Special thanks to the instructors and the Alabama Fire College for sponsoring this event.

While on patrol near midnight a Cornelius Police Department officer found a vehicle and house on fire on Smith Circle. The Officer immediately radioed for the Fire Department and began alerting the sleeping occupants that their home was on fire.

Cornelius and Town of Davidson, NC -- Town Hall Fire Departments responded to find one vehicle fire and fire throughout the attic of a single story home. Engine 6 arrived, secured their own water supply and began attacking the fire. Hook & Ladder 44 split their crew and performed search and vent functions. Engine 2 arrived and stretched a second attack line. Due to the amount of fire Huntersville Fire Department Station 1 was alerted for additional manpower. Davidson Engine 1 arrived and stretched a third hose line to address the vehicle fire. Davidson Engine 2 was assigned Rapid Intervention. Huntersville Station 1 arrived and relieved the original suppression crews still operating in the attic. The fire was placed under control in 20 minutes. There were no injuries. The fire is currently under investigation by the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal’s Office.

Today Cornelius Fire was dispatched to a woodworking business on Hwy 115 for a reported outside fire.  First arriving member found a outside fire that also involved the attached saw dust silo and vacuum system.  Due to the potential fire risk, a working building fire assignment was started and additional companies were added.  No extension was found in the building.  Overhaul to the silo was conducted by members and searches of the building proved negative.  Unfortunately there was one employee of the business that was injured. We do not have any updates, nor will we publish any on this matter.Image attachment
