Way to go, Nick🍾🎓🎉

Today we conducted a live fire training exercise in the 13400 Block of Sam Furr Road (the future home of a new Publix store). We were able to train in a donated house (a large house) and we spent the morning practicing extinguishment techniques under live fire conditions. Also in attendance was a crew from Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue. Also in attendance, 3 Huntersville, North Carolina - Town Government Commissioners (Melinda Bales, Lance Munger and Brian Hines). Commissioners Munger & Hines actually suited up & received a close up view of how we trained. It was a very good day. We have 3 more planned burns in the next week or so, in order to clear a total of 4 homes for the new construction. We appreciate the opportunity to train. #TrainingFire #OneTownOneTeam #TrainAsWeFight ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for all that you do for the community! It is greatly appreciated!

Is this the house on the right that sits way off the road if you’re headed towards concord, right before the stoplight? The driveway is close to the pages pond entrance.

Could see the smoke from I-85. Hope everyone came out safe.

I could have used a donated house as a cat sanctuary...

What a dream house to set on fire- whatever the reason! Humans.... smdh.

what a shame...always loved that house

That sure is a nice house to destroyed. It's a shame

Looked like a really nice place! I needed that garage in my life 😭😭

This was my aunts house. Sad to see it gone

Jacob Hovis, I think I found our smoke plume we saw on the lake yesterday!

Nice home to set on fire.

Grateful for all you do!

**Working Fire** This evening CLFD operated at a fire in a single family home on Pine Ridge Drive. First arriving H&L 44 found smoke showing, declared working fire, and began a search. E6 arrived and stretched initial attack line and confined fire to one room. Companies on the assignment: E6, H&L 44, T4, R4 and Davidson E1 as well as numerous volunteers. Solid work by all members.Image attachment

On the evening of May 7th Cornelius Engine 6 responded to Huntersville to assist with a working house fire. The majority of the fire damage was in the garage and attic as well as a boat in the driveway. The cause is still under investigation.Image attachment

Yesterday Stations 1, 3, 4 & Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue responded to a working fire in Town. Just after 5pm calls began coming in for a house fire in the 12600 Block of Cumberland Crest Drive. Engine 1 arrived on scene with heavy fire from the garage as well as a boat fully involved in the driveway. 

Crews worked quickly to extinguish the fire. Fire was held to the garage and did not translate into the home. Home suffered some water and smoke damage but the bulk of the fire damage was in the garage, attic space above and the boat was a total loss. The Fire Marshal is investigating fire cause and origin. Special thanks to Huntersville Police Department & MEDIC for also responding. #WorkingFire #HuntersvilleFD

What a phenomenal job these firemen did containing this fire under the windy conditions. They not only saved surrounding houses but they saved the owners dog as well. Job well done men!

The Cornelius Fire Department’s apparatus committee has been in Clintonville, WI for precon on a new Seagrave engine company.  This new engine will mirror Engine 6, which was placed in service in 2018.  Once this new truck is accepted, it will be put in service at Fire Station #2.Image attachment

Feed the Frontline Mecklenburg- Salute to Heroes Charlotte will be visiting the Davidson Fire Department. They will be delivering Harris Teeter gift cards to Davidson Fire Department and Cornelius Fire Department. The gift cards will be used to provide on-duty meals to first responders working in Davidson and Cornelius areas on the frontlines during the Covid -19 pandemic.

When: April 22, 2021

Timing: 12 noon

Location : 216 S Main St, Davidson, NC 28036

While the community is opening up and COVID-19 restrictions are easing, the risk to all first responders remains. To show support, AT&T and FIRSTNET, Built with AT&T have partnered to feed all first responder organizations in Mecklenburg County. To date they have fed 13 of 25 organizations and have provided 12,000 plus meals to heroes serving on the frontlines in the community during the COVID - 19 pandemic.

A note from Feed the Frontline Mecklenburg:

Feed the Frontline Mecklenburg was created by Mecklenburg EMS in partnership with Salute to Heroes Charlotte Inc. (Great Balls of Fire Inc.) and Charlotte Salute to Heroes Hockey. The mission was to provide on-duty meals to Heroes serving on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to feed every public safety member or support staff in Mecklenburg County at least once. In addition to feeding first responders, the program has helped to coordinate meals for other Frontline Heroes - doctors, nurses, and other various medical professionals and support staff.

The program has a huge impact on the business community as well. We purchase meals from local restaurants paying full price to support these businesses and their team members who have all been impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Truly, this has been a win-win situation from the start.

Fire alarm goes working fire:

This morning at 9:40 Cornelius and Davidson were alerted to respond to Heights Way for a fire alarm. Initial arriving L44 found heavy smoke conditions and a fire being held in check by a sprinkler head. Our members are trained to treat every alarm as a working incident. From apparatus placement to having all their gear on. This mentality makes all the difference and the incident run smoothly.

Happy birthday month to our 2001 Seagrave Marauder I. This engine company had been first out of the west side for 20 years where homes can range from 3,000 to 20,000 sqft. She has had a few modifications over the years, but today, she is first out at Firehouse 2.  We are happy to report that she has 113,000 miles and counting!Image attachmentImage attachment

I never went by miles...I always looked at hours. you could drive one mile to a fire but operate for two hours. how many more miles would that have equated to?

I believe Kevin Fox and I took her on the first run....Happy Birthday!

You show your rig pride and give it respect they will out last the new. Great job CornTown.

Today the station 2 crew took FB4 to conduct a joint training with local partners. Through the rain we were able to complete multiple drills including drift sets, navigation, new patient access areas, new dispatching protocols, as well as a demo from the Charlotte FD and their drone capabilities. ...

This afternoon while both crews were conducting hose evolutions they were alerted to an overturned vehicle on Catawba Ave. near Town Hall. Rescue 4 & Engine 2 arrived to find one vehicle on its side with the occupant trapped inside. Rescue 4’s crew began stabilizing the vehicle and E2’s crew stretched a protection line and gained access to the patient for patient care. The windshield was removed after the vehicle was stabilized and the patient was packaged for extrication. The patient was free ten minutes after arrival of both crews. #CORNTOWN ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Charlotte! Its time for another hotspot!  No pun intended!! 🤣This week, I decided to give a shoutout to all our local fire departments.  What they do is amazing!! Not only do they respond to emergencies, they also donate their time to our communities. 
 So often they are the unsung heroes.  So please remember our local firemen and firewomen when driving by the fire station - maybe stop in and give a donation.  You never know when youll need their services.

We are very proud of the work they all put in and are extremely excited to have them on shift. Welcome to the Graveyard boys!Image attachment

Great job glad it’s not my house 🏡 training make all the difference in being safe 😀

#saltycrew

That is great! Definitely the beginning of a new chapter. How will the full timers' schedule work? How will the rank structure work with the veteran part time/volunteer officers? *Updated

Another important milestone for Cornelius in a fire and first responder career model. Now let’s put that command structure in place.

Awesome!!!
