Please consider donating to the Carolina Brotherhood! The Carolina Brotherhood is a 501c3 charitable organization composed solely of emergency responders, and their families, from across North and South Carolina. The Carolina Brotherhood was founded in 2010 by two Charlotte (NC) firefighters and has grown to include over 100 emergency responders who have participated over the last decade. Our mission is to provide financial and emotional support to the families of emergency responders who become sick, injured, or killed in the line of duty. They accomplish the mission by cycling across North and South Carolina, annually varying the route in order to meet the families and friends of our fallen heroes in public safety. This time with families and friends allows the Brotherhood to learn about their fallen loved ones, hear their stories, and get to know the fallen heroes on a personal level.

Here’s a quick video discussing a little bit about the Public Safety Boat School we hosted last week.
As summer approaches and people start frequenting #LKN, we’d like to remind everyone of a few safety tips:
Choose swimming areas carefully and always swim in close proximity to a friend
Always wear your PFD!!
Never jump into the water when you can’t see the bottom.
Always supervise your children closely when around the water.
Never drink alcohol and operate a boat or other vessel on the water.
Always know the weather and monitor for any changes.
Make sure your vessels have all required safety equipment.
Maintain situational awareness of other boaters in the area.
If you don’t know CPR, we encourage you to take a course and learn how. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for all you do!
😎😎 thanks for sharing 😀
Over the last 2 days, several of our members have been in Bedford, Virginia attending a Man vs Machine class taught by P.L. Vulcan Fire Training Concepts LLC. This class teaches “outside of the box” techniques when members are faced with difficult incidents such as impalements, extremities caught in machinery, ring removals, etc. We’re always looking for ways to better ourselves and this is another way we can better serve our community.
Huge shoutout to the guys at Bedford Fire Department for hosting the class and for allowing our guys to stay at the firehouse! Excellent hospitality and fellowship, as always! ... See MoreSee Less
So glad y’all could make it. We can’t wait for more future trainings together.
Great class and solid brothers! Thanks for coming!
Nice meeting y’all ! Thanks for coming!
Over the last 2 days, we hosted the 2023 Lake Norman Public Safety Boat School. All agencies that provide services on Lake Norman were in attendance with nearly 100 participants. We conducted several skill stations including: round table of past events, sonar operations, Tow Fish demonstrations, boat handling, water survival techniques, and new technology that we’re utilizing to make responses on #LakeNorman quicker and operate smoother. The school ended with a final multi-jurisdictional, multi-faceted “incident” which ended with finding a “victim” in approximately 40’ of water. We would like to thank all of the agencies, participants, and instructors for participating and providing their equipment to better serve our citizens and visitors.
Agencies represented are listed below:
Huntersville Fire Department, Mount Mourne Fire Dept, Mooresville Fire-Rescue, Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue, Cornelius Police Department, Denver Fire Department, Sherrills Ford - Terrell Fire & Rescue, Catawba County Sheriff's Office, East Lincoln Fire Department, Lincoln County Sheriffs Dept & Detention Center, Cook's Community VFD, JAARS, Inc., North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement, NC Wildlife Resources Commission, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Lake Norman, Iredell County Sheriff, Shepherds Fire - Rescue, Palisades Regional Fire Rescue, Mecklenburg County ABC ...

Yesterday evening, Cornelius and Davidson were dispatched to the 20400 Block of Sterling Bay Lane West for an apartment fire. Cornelius Engine 6 arrived to find a 3 story apartment complex with fire showing from the 2nd and 3rd floor as well as the roof. Cornelius 12 (Robinette) arrived and assumed Command. Mount Mourne Fire Dept and Huntersville Fire Department were quickly added to the call. Multiple hand lines were put into play to control the fire. Hook & Ladder 44 split their crew and began searching the building for occupants and laddering the building. Davidson Car 5 arrived and was assigned Division C supervisor (Rear of the Building). Davidson Engines 1 & 2 arrived and were assigned water supply and and assisting with the search.
This is our second fire in 2 days in the Bexley complex, on different sides of the complex.
Huge thank you to our mutual aid companies for assisting us and a special thanks to Odell Fire and Rescue for moving an Engine Company to Cornelius Station 1 during this incident to provide continued coverage in town.
The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office has determined the cause of the fire to be improperly discarded smoking materials. ... See MoreSee Less
Glad we could help!
We lived there and had a fire August of last year that started on the 3rd floor, grease fire. It took a lot of fighting to get anything from them for recovery. Have been displaced since then. They aren’t made very well and I don’t think everything is up to code standards. Very poor management!!!
I worked central dispatch for the fire last night. Strong work guys!
Okay, this sound suspicious to me. Thank you for your quick work and dedication.
You-all are phenomenal! As a Bexley resident we appreciate your quick response here & concern for helping! Thank you! ❤️🚒👨🏻🚒❤️
Great job by all . Thank you all for your service to our Great community
Another great job!
Unsung heroes! Thank you for keeping us safe!
Coincidence or Arson 🤔
What?? What's going on over there??
Now if we could just get congress to work like this, fantastic job to all that were there
Does anyone know what caused the FIRST fire a few days ago at this same apartment complex ?

On May 3rd Cornelius and Davidson Fire Departments were dispatched to a reported apartment fire on Sterling Bay Ln. in Cornelius Station 1’s first due. Upon arrival units found a three-story apartment with fire on the second and third floor balconies and fire through the roof. First due Engine companies stretched two hand lines for suppression, established two water supplies, supplied the buildings FDC and supplied the aerial waterway of Hook & Ladder 44. H&L 44’s crew was assisted by Davidson Engine 1 and conducted a primary search of the entire building. Cornelius Engine 5 and Rescue 4 arrived and stretched a third line for suppression. Huntersville Tower 1 arrived and performed ventilation on the delta side of the building. Huntersville Engine 1 and Mt Mourne Tanker 1 arrived and provided relief for the first due companies.
Medic evaluated and treated four civilians as well as multiple animals found in the apartments. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal’s office responded and assisted with suppression and served as an aide for Incident Command. Cornelius Police and Animal Control were also on scene and provided assistance with traffic, crowd control and care for the animals. Oxygen was provided to the animals via devices donated by the Dog Supplies Warehouse in Huntersville.
We would also like to thank the Mooresville Fire Department, Mt. Mourne Fire Department and Huntersville Fire Department for providing coverage in Cornelius and Davidson while we operated on scene.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal's Office.
Special Thanks to all of the following agencies

Great job by all involved!
Awesome work CLFD! THANK YOU!!
This was an "all hands on deck" incident for area departments. MULTIPLE firefighters and fire officers who were NOT on duty stopped whatever they were doing - dinner with family, little league games, etc - to hustle to this scene to help fight this fire, and to serve their community. This truly reflects the culture of teamwork and service among our local responders. Furthermore, the civilians on scenes like this are always amazing too. They offer clothing, food, transportation and all types of assistance to folks they've never met before. From these incidents come amazing acts of service to neighbors between every race, origin, etc. Most people are good and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Also, if you're reading this and you don't have a fire/waterproof box for you important documents, get one. It may be the best $50 you ever spend.
My heart just aches for those who lost their fur family and their home. I used to live in this building a little over a year ago so my heart holds a special place. Went by today to say prayers for all those involved and my eyes could not stop welling up because we lived there for several years. Thank you to all the firemen, medic, animal rescue and just the community that all came together to do all they could. Sending prayers 🙏🏻
That fire was huge! I could see the smoke coming down 77 south from Troutman. My family and I used to live in these apts and it’s sad to see such a traumatic event took place there. I am so glad no lives were lost, civilians or firefighters. Happy to read that there was oxygen for the pets too. Great job to all who helped! I love the selfie of the multiple depts!
This is the best of the best folks working together ! Thank you to everyone who helped and served. We were on exit 28, saw & saw the smokewhen emergency services were en route.
Did this apartment building not have a working fire sprinkler system?
We could see the smoke all the way over here in Denver. Thank you for what you do.
As a resident of this community—💕Thank you to ALL who worked side by side & with such kindness & compassion. Impressive response & heartwarming to see neighbors helping neighbors—2 legs & 4! ❤️🐾Praying for my neighbors who lost so much but because of you-all they are still here to rebuild their lives! ❤️
Did EJ get called in on this one ?
Thanks to all of you for your coordinated and team efforts. We see you and appreciate your service!
Thank you to everyone Fire, EMS, police, Dog supplies as well as all those that covered while our fire departments worked on the fire. So proud to know Mooresville, Huntersville and Davidson came to our Cornelius aide whether to fight the fire or cover our town. It takes a neighbors helping neighbors 😃
Nice work by all involved!
Great job everyone who came to our neighbors rescue without hesitation. We are all so grateful to be in living in Cornelius and surrounded by amazing towns.
Great job to all the first responders!!!
This is what you guys train for and so much more! So thankful we have that great hook and ladder truck!! Thank you!
Great job. Keep up the great work. You have an amazing team.
What was the cause of the first fire? Seems weird that there were two fires in two (ish) days. So sad that people lost their things 🙁
Thank you for your service to the community!
Thank you 🙏 for keeping our wonderful community safe!
Great job and stay safe
Thank you always to those who chose to put their lives on the line for us.
Thank you for all you do!

Earlier today, Cornelius was dispatched to the intersection of Church Street and Pine Street for an outside gas leak. Engine 6 & Hook and Ladder 44 responded. Members dug down and found an old metal line underground that had been accidentally torn apart by contractors working in the area and was blowing off natural gas. Members worked for nearly an hour before being able to clamp the line. ... See MoreSee Less
Just a question as to why the members of the FD had to locate the leak and the gas company wouldn’t??
Thank you for your service to the community. Glad we have each of you to keep us safe.
That’s a first for me. Never seen that done by an fd. Glad it went well and safely.
That’s hard work. BZ.
Thank you for everything you do to keep us safe
