In fiscal year 2022 Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue and the Town of Cornelius began an effort to combat occupational cancer within the fire service. The partnership began by purchasing two gear extractors for each fire station. This allows firefighters to clean their gear, limiting their exposure to harmful carcinogens and toxins found in their gear after fighting fire. 

In fiscal year 2023 the town board approved phase one of a capital improvement project that provided money to purchase a second set of gear for 1/3 of the department. This allows firefighters to launder dirty gear while on duty and remain in service with a clean second set for the remainder of their shift. This week we received a shipment twenty one sets of gear, eighteen were second sets for our employees that worked the most hours in 2021 and three were for our new full time employees that were hired last September. 

We would like to thank the Town of Cornelius for their continued support of our Fire Department.

Over the course of the next several weeks, our duty crews will be cleaning and detailing every truck and piece of equipment we carry. Today, C-Shift started work on Engine 5. This truck is the second oldest piece of apparatus in our fleet, and we strive to keep it looking brand new.

Engine 5 is a 2005 Seagrave and is housed at Station 1. #corntown #Eastside #mainstreetengineco

When you’re the best, ya’ got to look the best.

It was a hated chore but a necessary evil, every year

Daniel Folks Sam Sparacello looks like us!

The new standard is to dump apparatus at 10 years look it up.

Got to love the truck crew but I’d much rather wheel the wagon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Spent many years “up in the coop”. You’re right, best seat in the house!

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. Yes It Is. Like A Little Loft Apartment. Practically Live Back Up There!

Had the honor of being a tiller man in an open seater. Best seat in the house.

We used to call it the pope mobile…..best seat in the house…especially during parades.!!!..loved being a tillerman…

I was able to drive both ends for 3 years. Best job in the Fire Service!

Nothing else like it

It is fun to drive through traffic, loved watching the look ๐Ÿ‘€ on people’s faces when they see you coming right at them, while transitioning through a red light on the wrong side of the road… but there are a few downsides! You better wear a seatbelt and helmet because a bump or pot hole will try to launch ๐Ÿš€ you through the roof. It’s rough back there

I served as a fireman for West Virginia for 25 years and the 25 years that I was a fireman I have praise God that all the time that I served not one time I got injured or hurt but I always tell people be thankful for Jesus because he's how I know he's real because he kept me safe he let me save people's lives so I want to thank you for the service that you did for us I want to thank for the people that serves in the military and all police medical environments fireman's cuz without these people here on Earth this Earth would not be the same you all are my heroes and always will be in my heart thank you brother and sisters

Bumpy ride but a great seat. Loved our tiller.

40 years but never had the honor of tillering

Aquí en Aragon ( España ) 40 años he estado yo de bombero conductor ahora ya jubilado pero no tenemos los camiones tan largos, un abrazo amigos

My husband was retired firefighter Haz-Mat and a paramedic, he always was amazed that this type of truck was still being used. It takes a lot of skill.

Thank goodness for the trickiest who make the Engines job easier. Served 23 years Retired.

Second best thing to being a Rock Star.

In my volunteer days the tiller was not enclosed. I had to duck down exiting the bay door!

Yes for sure

1 for stop, 2 to go, 3 for backing.

Looks like mecklenburg county, nc.

Brilliant. โ˜˜๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

My dream seat

Always the last to the scene though lol

Love it! โค๏ธ

Tillerman!!

The Cornelius Police Department, the SBI and the FBI continue to search for Madalina. Detectives are working tirelessly and are following up on many leads to bring Madalina home.

Please continue to share her pictures on social media to help us #FindMadalina.

On Thursday Cornelius firefighters answered three separate natural gas leak calls. The third and final one involved a water leak as well causing quite a muddy situation. Cornelius ended the day with 11 calls for service and one set of extremely muddy gear. ***Reminder - Call 811 before you dig to have utilities located***Image attachmentImage attachment

Thanks for coming to Oakhurst AGAIN due to Spectrum’s inability to avoid hitting all sorts of lines as they lay cable ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ We appreciate you!

Spectrum came to caldwell station and did the same thing! Hopefully they have to pay the city for all this carelessness!

They have flags and paint markers everywhere and they still hit them. ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ

Jesse Posey this what I was talking about.

Those 3rd party contractors could careless on what they damage, all they care about is getting the fiber in the ground as they get paid by the foot. If Spectrum would start fining their contractors for each damage, then this might slow down some. If everyone would go express their displeasure and concerns at the monthly Char-Meck Utilities Commission Meeting then maybe this would help hold Spectrum accountable.

Thank you for everything that you do for us

URGENT:

According to Charlotte Mecklenburg Emergency Management, the siren you are currently hearing was a regularly scheduled silent test but there was a malfunction in the system and the siren continued. There is NO EMERGENCY. No need to call 911 or report this issue. ALL IS WELL.

What should the schools have done as it wasn’t scheduled. Do they have a plan??

I think the problem is that a new message wasn’t sent out explaining it was a mistake or accidental activation. I am personally on Meck County alerts for email and text and I got nothing until the panic reached a level that people were calling and posting asking for answers. It’s an obvious break down with our emergency management. Hopefully lessons learned and better plans going forward but it’s wasn’t a citizen issue it was a Duke Power and Meck County EM issue.

I believe the community is in need of further education. This proves we are not well enough informed.

Their website says 1/11 was supposed to be a test day. Guess they didn’t check their calendar. ๐Ÿคฆ‍โ™€๏ธ

Twitter and their website said their test was 1/11. Tried calling the town and non emergency police line and all got voicemails. I guess everyone else was too.

If it were a true emergency, what would we do?

As long as that’s the only “malfunction”! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Thanks for the update!

Where do we go to get the iodine pills? And what is the protocol for evacuation?

Thank you so much for the prompt update!

This afternoon Cornelius & Davidson Fire were dispatched to a possible structure fire on Washam Potts Rd in Station 1โ€™s first due. Engine 6 and Hook & Ladder 44 arrived to find a vehicle fire in a carport on the C side of the home. E6 began suppression while H&L44 checked for extension and completed a primary search. Engine 4 arrived and established a water supply. Davidson Engine 1 was assigned as the rapid intervention crew shortly before a control time was transmitted. Crews found no extension into the home.
