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 #FireBoat4Image attachmentImage attachment

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.

Old Hook & Ladder 44 is still turning heads at her new home in California. Thanks to Tractordrawnaerial.com for posting our old girl for the world to see. Most maneuverable rigs in the industry allowing for superb aerial placement even in tight spaces.

Earlier in the day Engine 6 assisted Huntersville with a possible structure fire on Huntersville Concord Rd. While clearing that call a traffic accident with pin in was dispatched on Statesville Rd. Engine 6 responded and assisted with what unfortunately ended up being a fatal accident.

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for your service

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.

Thank you!

Thank you for all you do !!!

Stay safe out there. Thank you for all you do.

Pretty awesome guys.

Thank you for everything you do for our community. Stay safe out there.

You all do a great job!

Stay safe out there! Thank you for everything y'all do.

#FIREFACTORY

Bless you guys! You are awesome. 🙏😘🙏

I am so thankful for the Fire and Rescue team. Y’all are the best. 💕

Strong work

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. 

If you are interested in helping out monetarily you can go to their gofundme page https://www.gofundme.com/khgtt-home-destroyed-by-fire?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=fb_dn_postdonate_r&fbclid=IwAR0X-XfSk6_FCCpg2rK2umlPcwr9VWGFsF9ZxfzlE9BZSUQgR_MpyOB253Y.

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.

Thanks to Huntersville Fire Department, Mount Mourne Fire Dept, Davidson Fire Department, and the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal.

I have posted my pictures of "after the fire was out" on my FB page. You may use them to your liking. Paul Lof

Is a "WORKING FIRE" an active fire or a practice controlled fire?

Hope everyone got out safely

Stay safe brothers

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.Image attachment

Even though the snow/sleet has stopped please don’t let your guard down. Temperatures are projected to fall well below freezing after midnight tonight causing widespread black ice. Be careful tonight and during the morning commute.

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

trees cause to many fires

😯 This has been our tradition for years - we always like supporting our firefighters!

Maybe this will help. Many suppliers if you change your mind. www.ncchristmastrees.com/

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.

Sell***

Pam McGrath

Davidson Lions Club has also discontinued Christmas tree sales

the cost went up
