Be careful while boating on Lake Norman. The projected rainfall tomorrow is over an inch. This will only make the situation on Lake Norman worse. #LakeNorman #FireBoat4The frequent heavy rains we’ve received lately have caused the Catawba River Basin to rise rapidly which is the primary inflow source of the Lookout Reservoir as well as Lake Norman.
Recently, Lake Lookout’s water level has reached 103.5 feet. 3.5 feet of overflow goes over the dams spillway and flows into Lake Norman bringing with it large items of debris.
Areas on the Northern end of Lake Norman, especially north of the North Carolina Highway 150 Bridge, have large debris such as large parts of trees floating in them which could make travel on the water hazardous. With more rain in the upcoming forecast, the conditions are unlikely to improve in the near future.
Please use extreme caution if you must travel on either Lake Norman or Lake Lookout. ... See MoreSee Less

Considering the area you protect, and the property value that can support it, this department needs to become fully funded with a true cost compensation for the volunteers that respond. You all are amazing, be safe.
How many active house fires does that make over the last couple/few weeks? What a mess! Glad everyone is safe, but so sad to lose everything esp at this time of year.

Today Engine 2 returned to the Madison Village neighborhood that was the scene of a working house fire on Monday December 17th. The community rallied around the Gillion Family and donated numerous items to our Station 2. Today those donated items were delivered by the same Engine Company that extinguished the fire at their home on Monday.
Cornelius Lemley Fire Rescue needs your help. We are looking for families that may need a little pick me up around the holidays. Do you know of anyone in town that has a child that may be suffering from a medical condition, or is not able to get out of the house on Christmas? We are looking for someone special that we can come visit with one of our fire trucks on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your contact info as well as a brief description. Thank you in advance for your assistance. ... See MoreSee Less
At 11:57 today Cornelius and Huntersville were alerted to respond to Madison Village Dr for a house on fire. Companies arrived and found a garage on fire that had extended into the home. Due to the large volume of fire and the risk of exposures becoming involved additional help was requested. In total 5 lines were operated off E2. H&L44 found some creative parking which put them in an effective position to get to work. The home suffered significant damage but due to the aggressive actions of members on scene many items were able to be salvaged.
Over the last two days members have had the opportunity to train in multi company drills at Denver Fire Department. They graciously opened their facility for us to come get the unique opportunity to drill under live fire conditions. This was also done while maintaining coverage in our own area. ...

We will not be selling Christmas Trees this year. We have not been able to make contact with our supplier therefore the decision was made this morning to not sell trees. We are sorry for those that have made this annual tradition and we would like to thank all of you for your support in years past. ... See MoreSee Less
Courtney Shaughnessy maybe this was the issue? Read comment above mine from Linda Gillman
There was a story on the news this morning that many tree farms were destroyed in all the flooding we had this year and it may be many years before they have more trees for use at Christmas. That is why Christmas trees are a lot more expensive this year across the country
Planned to help you sell again this year. I understand.
Davidson Lions Club has also discontinued Christmas tree sales
