Comment on Facebook Box alarm in station...

I have a few guys that’s asked me that’s a certified ff if y’all will hire someone without EMT and send them to get it

So will the full timers be officers of the part timers or drivers (to start)? I wish I could be part of the team.

Great work

Pictured in the bottom right corner is retired FDNY Captain Peter Blaich at today’s 9/11 Remembrance Vigil. Peter was assigned to Engine 9 on September 11th and was one of the first responding Engine Companies to the North Tower of the World Trade Center. He was operating in Stairwell B of the North Tower when the South Tower collapsed. Peter survived the collapse of the North tower moments later and operated at the ground zero for many weeks afterwards. After retiring Peter moved to Cornelius and became a Cornelius firefighter. Every year Peter leads our 9/11 Remembrance Vigil at the Memorial in front of Station 1. Today were we joined by other retired FDNY & NYPD members to remember the events of September 11th. We are extremely thankful to have Pete as a member of our department and honored to have him and the other retired Firefighters, EMT’s and Police Officers with us today. A special thanks to the Town of Cornelius, Cornelius PD, the Mecklenburg County FMO and the Patriot Guard for their assistance today.  NEVER FORGET!!!

Prayers- never forget

As a 9-11 responder that day I would just like to thank the Chiefs, Barbee and Bridges (sorry to all for any spelling mistakes and if I missed the other chief) MC Peter Blaich (himself a 9-11 first responder) RIcki Overcash for his tireless effort that went into the creation of this memorial, the Cornelius PD, the Patriot guard riders and the community members who showed up in this crazy times. Mel I can't forget you for making me a part of the crowd. thank you all for the hard work and great day, it lifts me up. To the Patrons of Jacks and the employees, thank you for put up with me at 3:43 pm, when I asked for the prayers and the moment of silence for the 2997 people who never returned home that day. (sorry if I missed anyone, it was a long but nice day to see the Cornelius Lemley FD and community do not forget 9-11

Never forget

Comment on Facebook Cornelius Lemley ...

I am very disappointed that this solemn ceremony will not be open to the public this year. It is possible to be outside and observe social distancing responsibly. NEVER FORGET

Disappointed to say the very least. If we can shop at stores in Cornelius, we certainly can stand six ft apart at a ceremony (with masks) It seems some people do not stand by the “NEVER FORGET”. I was there and will NEVER FORGET. And public can show up during the day . Explain the difference if 30 or so people show up at the same time ? Stay safe Brothers.

I remember being at the 1 House that day and the several days after with Jamey Bumgarner Guerry Barbee Jeremy Bumgarner Kevin Fox Robert Amadeo Howie Eury Gary Potts Chance Osborne Michael C Fox Timothy Miles and many others. I hope my brothers are all doing well today.

Always a good time packing hose, I volunteered in ny for 13 years and we had no hydrants packing 2500ft of 4 inch was not pleasant 😩🙈

Today Station 2 took advantage of the great weather and worked on some truck company operations. We started with a truck company drill getting set up for venting operations on a commercial structure. 2’s crew worked on lashing a roof ladder to the truck aerial when it comes up short. We ended with deploying the life saving rope and worked on our roof descending skills. ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday FB4 made an appearance at the Salute To Service. This event was hosted by Robby Maschhaupt, his crew, and Hungry Heroes. They are giving local first responders a day on the lake and wake surfing lessons. What an amazing day and phenomenal organizations. It’s safe to say we are much better at fighting fires than we are at wake surfing.
