Overnight Engine 4 & Rescue 4 were sent to a vehicle accident on Chartown Dr. While enroute the call was upgraded to an entrapment and the location was changed to I77. Engine 4 arrived, confirmed the entrapment and began patient care on multiple patients. Rescue 4 began extrication. Cornelius 9 arrived, assumed command and requested an Engine Company from Davidson & @huntersville_fd for patient care. Three patients were entrapped, two were ejected and one was walking wounded. A total of six Medic trucks and one EMS Supervisor responded from Medic. All patients were transported as priority 2. ... See MoreSee Less

That why you’re #1 in my book. On the call whenever. Wherever.

Duty crews took advantage of a beautiful Carolina day to train on some of the non-fire uses of our ladder company.  Crews set up our “short haul”  most commonly used in removing a patient that could have been injured on a commercial roof. While training, stations 1 and 2 and Davidson station 1 responded to a kitchen fire in downtown Cornelius. Luckily the homeowner had working smoke detectors! #corntownImage attachment

We would like to take a moment to thank everyone who helped our crews today. Traditionally, our crews would invite and have family to the firehouse to fellowship and eat. This year is obviously much different. Special thanks to Sarah Thomas and family for helping organize and serve food today. Lake Norman Financial and Sweet Cakes provided some excellent deserts! To top it off the Antiquity neighborhood raised money for a donation. We truly serve the best community and are extremely grateful. ... See MoreSee Less

Looks like driving too fast, following too close...😐

I’m not surprised in this area. We live off exit 28 and driving on 77 from exit 23-36 looks like a kids video game. Nobody knows how to drive in this 13 mile section of road, it’s ridiculous. Drivers not knowing how to merge properly and people deciding to suddenly slow to 50 right over the lake and stay slow till exit 23. I’m not saying that’s what caused this wreck but I definitely have seen some of the worst driving I have ever seen in this stretch of road.

Driving in a straight line and not running into any other cars is hard. 😑 I feel like this was probably a combination of people tailgating+not paying attention to the road (like...at all). Hope everyone is okay, but certainly frustrating for something like this to eff up traffic for hours when it’s so.avoidable. to begin with. 🤦🏼‍♀️

When does people just driving and put the phon away?? It goes worse and worse. Auto insurance doesn’t like that.

My boyfriend has been at a standstill around mm 24 heading north, for about 30 minutes now.

Great work guys!

Hope everyone is alright.

How do people do it? Clear skies, no rain, beautiful day...it takes talent to f*** up driving under those conditions🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🙄

Hopefully everyone is okay 🙏

Absolute selfish crap drivers!

Too busy looking at the lake while driving by.

Strong work guys!!!

Great work Guys

Thanks for a great job ❤️

No surprise here. Terrible merging onto 77 N from exit 28. Get two or more 53’ trucks in the right lane, or add some double trailers, dump trucks, pickups, RVs, giant vehicles like Suburbans, it leaves no time or room to merge in. The white wall of plastic sticks doesn’t help. 77 both directions is a badly designed and constructed roadway from Charlotte to Mooresville. Mix in Tailgating, distracted driving, selfish driving, speeding, and jitterbugging, and it’s an accident waiting to happen. Watch drivers enter and leave the toll lanes in heavy traffic; nightmare.

Cornelius Engine 5 and Cornelius 9 assisted Huntersville Fire Department with a working house fire last night in Huntersville Station 1’s first due. Huntersville E1 found heavy fire upon arrival. Cornelius E5 arrived, secured the water supply and stretched a second attack line. All occupants escaped the home and one was treated and released by Medic. Four Engines from Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson responded as well as Huntersville Tower 1. The cause is under investigation by the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal’s Office. ...

Only the best survive. Keep on keeping on.

Just after 3AM Cornelius and Huntersville Fire Department station 2 were alerted for a boat fire. E4 arrived and found multiple boats on fire at Kings Point Marina. Members were able to cut nearby boats loose and got water on the fire quickly. This led to the fire being contained and not devastating the marina. A marina fire is a scenario that we are always planning for and discussing.Image attachment

*Fire Alarm Turns Into Working Fire*

Early this morning Cornelius and Huntersville Station 2 were alerted to respond to a fire alarm on Bethelwood Ln. While enroute additional information relayed smoke coming from the house. E2 arrived with smoke showing and declared a working fire. Additional companies were dispatched from Huntersville, Davidson, and Denver for their fire boat. Crews were met with heavy fire conditions and zero visibility. Fire was found in the crawl space and extended through the roof. No injuries were reported and all occupants made it out of the house safely.

Dave Gilroy says fire alarms are BS and you should respond to fire alarms in a Siberian. Send him a copy of the fire report encase he runs for town commissioner again LOL

Cornelius 12 and 15 y’all did a great job with command last night. Made my job that much easier on the other side on the radio with how clear and steady you both were.

Thank u for all you do!

We would like to take a moment to wish Davidson Fire Chief Bo Fitzgerald the best as he has decided to step down. Chief Fitzgerald has been extremely proactive and progressive for the Town of Davidson. He has been an amazing asset to the fire service in Northern Mecklenburg county and a pleasure to work with over the years. Good Luck Chief!

I have a few guys that’s asked me that’s a certified ff if y’all will hire someone without EMT and send them to get it

So will the full timers be officers of the part timers or drivers (to start)? I wish I could be part of the team.

Great work

Pictured in the bottom right corner is retired FDNY Captain Peter Blaich at today’s 9/11 Remembrance Vigil. Peter was assigned to Engine 9 on September 11th and was one of the first responding Engine Companies to the North Tower of the World Trade Center. He was operating in Stairwell B of the North Tower when the South Tower collapsed. Peter survived the collapse of the North tower moments later and operated at the ground zero for many weeks afterwards. After retiring Peter moved to Cornelius and became a Cornelius firefighter. Every year Peter leads our 9/11 Remembrance Vigil at the Memorial in front of Station 1. Today were we joined by other retired FDNY & NYPD members to remember the events of September 11th. We are extremely thankful to have Pete as a member of our department and honored to have him and the other retired Firefighters, EMT’s and Police Officers with us today. A special thanks to the Town of Cornelius, Cornelius PD, the Mecklenburg County FMO and the Patriot Guard for their assistance today.  NEVER FORGET!!!
