Flashback Friday. Pictured is our 1953 Ford, the first new truck that Cornelius Volunteer Fire Department ever purchased. This truck served as Engine 1 until it was replaced in 1974 by a Ford/Bean. At that time “the Old 53” was renumbered to Engine 3. This truck was sold in early 1994 and funds were used to purchase our current Engine 3 - the 1995 Seagrave that was the first Seagrave for our department. This November Engine 3 will be moved to a reserve status and Engine 6 will be placed into service as a first out Engine Company at Station 1. Engine 6 will be first due to Old Town Cornelius.

Back when Big Ham Fox was a young chap?

Why no engine 1 these days?

Man that truck bring back memories. I drove that truck to many fires. No one could drive it better than Jimmy Bumgarner. In the old day when the alarm would go off Eudean Griffin would have it running and pulled out on the sidewalk when we got to the station. What a truck in it’s day!

That truck was loud!!

During Hurricane Florence we were able to staff 2 Engine Companies, Brush 6 and we cross staffed H&L44 and Rescue 4 from Friday until Monday morning. We greatly appreciate the men that staffed the station, some of which worked multiple shifts in a row. 

We would also like the thank the numerous citizens and businesses that provided us with hot meals, snacks and drinks. Unfortunately we do not know everyone’s name but we do know Pat Jackson, Anette Powell, Sarah Cichocki, Beyond Decadence, COWBOY STEAK • CHICKEN • RIBS and the gentleman from Bluff Point Rd.  

We would like to thank you ALL for looking out for us during the storm and we ask that you all take a moment today and think about our fellow North & South Carolinians that are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Florence.Image attachmentImage attachment

The Town has been diligently preparing for Hurricane Florence this week. Crews from all Town departments will be on standby to respond, should the need arise and as soon as conditions allow. A few important pieces of information to keep in mind.

- Please only call 9-1-1 in a true emergency situation.
- If you lose power, please contact your electric company. High water and debris can conceal down power lines and other hazards. DO NOT drive over or stand near downed power lines.
- @DukeEnergy customers can report outages by texting “OUT” to 57801 or visit the Duke Energy website at www.duke-energy.com/outages.
- Electricities asks you to report power outages online at cornelius.electricities.org/report-an-outage/.
- Energy United customers may report outages online at www.energyunited.com/ or call 1-800-EUNITED (1-800-386-4833).

- The closest open shelter to Cornelius is North Mecklenburg High School (11201 Old Statesville Road, Huntersville, NC).
- Please call the non-emergency police number, 704-892-1363 for assistance with storm-related, non-life threatening situations.

As our community prepares for the potential impact of Hurricane Florence, we encourage all residents to prepare now by taking the following precautions:

- Ensure you have food, water, and medications for each person in your home for several days.
- Be ready for power, utility, and phone service outages. Keep your mobile phones charged.
- Have a communication plan in place. Remember that during disasters, sending text messages is usually reliable and faster than making phone calls as phone lines are often overloaded.
- Refill your gas tank and stock your vehicle with emergency supplies and a change of clothes.
- Bring patio furniture and garbage cans inside; they could become dangerous in high winds.
- Have enough cash on hand to last several days.

Be observant and stay safe. Watch for fast moving water and flooded roads. Do NOT drive around barricades or through high water. Remember, #TurnAroundDontDrown.

Check our website, cornelius.org, for additional resources.

Most importantly, stay safe.

Weather reports indicate the the edge of Florence will move into our area tonight into tomorrow. Please keep the folks on the coast in your thoughts and prayers as they are still feeling the effects.

Remember, if you encounter flooded streets, please TURN AROUND!

Your Cornelius Fire Department is staffed with extra personnel throughout the weekend...if you need us, we’ll be there!! Stay Safe!

Today the Annual 9/11 Remembrance Vigil was held at the Cornelius 9/11 Memorial at Fire Station 1. We were honored to have members from the FDNY, FDNY EMS and NYPD in attendance along with our fellow citizens. Today was truly a special event for us and we thank everyone who attended.

A special thanks goes to Mayor Woody Washam, Commissioner Bilodeau and Town Manager Andrew Grant for their attendance. We would also like to thank Bob Lazar (DJ Bob) for providing the sound system for the ceremony. #NeverForget

Does this have to do with the utility work that was being done on Friday? Was a mistake made causing this?

Cornelius firefighters had a pretty busy Friday.  Firefighters responded to 13 calls for service and completed their annual NFPA physicals throughout the day. Engine 3 also attended the last day of Summer Camp at the Lake Norman YMCA and sprayed the children. In between calls during the evening the crew from Station 1 also completed some new driver training with Engine 5. It was a busy but good day in #CORNTOWN
