Photos from Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue's post
Members of station 2 spent the morning stretching hose at one of the local marinas. This particular dock sits 1200' from where our truck would park at and also houses large boats. Obviously the fire boat would make this much easier but we were practicing for worst case scenarios. ... See MoreSee Less
We have our boat there😝
A dry standpipe would really help you guys out
Wow stretching 1200' of hose, that's ALOT of hose rolling afterward! LOL I wonder if there's a way to build or install a standpipe like halfway down the dock there that is fed from the water it sits in, with a filter at the bottom so particles don't clog it. I'm sure it's possible to do I just wonder how much it would be...
I would like more videos of that cute fireman please

#TBT - Pictured is our retired "Truck 13" a 1993 International/EVI Rescue truck. Originally purchased to serve as a "Service Truck" Truck 13 carried miscellaneous firefighting equipment as well as an on board air compressor and cascade system. In 1997 Cornelius assumed the primary role for all Rescue and First Responder calls in our fire district from North Mecklenburg Volunteer Rescue Squad. At that time the truck was equipped with a wide variety of rescue and EMS equipment and served as our first out Rescue and First Response vehicle. The name was then changed to "Rescue 13". With the addition of part time personnel in 2000 and a rapid increase in calls for service we quickly out grew the truck and its capabilities. In 2006 it was replaced with the current Rescue 4, a 2006 Pierce Dash Heavy Rescue. Rescue 13 was sold the following year to Garland, Nebraska Fire Department. ... See MoreSee Less

A dangerous situation was avoided today with approx 100 gallons of gasoline in the bilge of a boat.FB4 responded to Kings Point Marina for a reported fuel spill. We found a cruiser with approx 100 gallons of gasoline in the bilge. A member wearing full PPE entered the boat and applied a foam blanket in the bilge. FB4 remained with the tow company due to the risk of a fire. ... See MoreSee Less

The guys went out and stretched the 300' line today numerous times. This is our long line equipped to deliver a high GPM to our larger structures and structures that have a large setback off of the road. The line is 200' of 2.5" with a reducer to 100' of 2" hose and can be deployed by two firefighters. This set up is capable of delivering 280-310 gallons per minute. ... See MoreSee Less

Doing things there!
What would the difference in flow rate be if using 3" lightweight hose instead of the deuce 1/2?
What nozzle do you have?
Smooth bore or fog?
Is the fog an Elkhart selective gallons/ break apart?
What's your initial EP..?
Good deployment technique.
For this load, (we call it the Slagle load after one of our members who came up with it) we run a Akron 250 gpm, 50 psi fog nozzle. We have smooth bore nozzles on the truck as well as break apart fogs but this nozzle gave us the best flow. We overpump it just a bit pumping the line at 170 PDP.
Drilling is practice, and practice is for perfection, and when striving for perfection, Firefighters ALWAYS are in proper PPE.......AND, unless your running from an eminent building collapse, there is NEVER running on the Fireground.
Yes, the old Chief is being critical, because your lives could depend on it.......
Lotta work ! Not for the faint of heart !!! 😂

Hmmm, what about 3" with a 3 to 1-1/2 gated wye and an apartment pack with 150' 1-3/4 line?
Great drill. Nice pack
I have always sad . Sometimes you need to throw out the books and gust do it. You know what's better then no water, a little water. Good job. After saving half a chicken house with 400' of 11/2" down the middle of it. We always had a 400' chicken house lay on the Eng.

The Cornelius Lemley Fire Department is more than a department that fights fires and goes to medical emergencies. Our skill sets range from those things and more including vehicle accidents, hazardous materials incidents and even getting locked inside of your apartment or house as seen here. Truck 4 had to climb to the 3rd floor balcony to assist some residents who were trapped inside their apartment due to a faulty door lock. By using some of the same skills that we use during fires, the crew made swift work of locked door and without any damage to the building. ... See MoreSee Less

Is this training or for real?
This is a real fire in the Town of Huntersville today.
Seems to be an increase in house fires in LKN over that last few weeks. Thank you for all that you do. Stay safe!

Ben Charleston...isn't this your neighbor?

Today Cornelius Lemley Fire Rescue assisted Huntersville Fire Department with a working house fire. Cornelius Engines 4, 3, 2 and Truck 4 were on scene. Cornelius Engine 4 pulled a second line from Huntersville Engine 2 and entered in the front door. Engine 2,3 and Truck 4 took other various assingments to help cut the fire off from the rest of the house. During the course of Fire Attack a memeber of the department was burned and taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. He was later released and is doing just fine. ... See MoreSee Less
