STATION 2 RUNS A SERIOUS MVA WITH IMPALEMENT

Friday, September 12, 2014  Huntersville Station 2 was dispatched to Hopewell High School for a Traumatic Injury. Upon arrival Engine 22 discovered it actually was an MVA, involving a car that hit a gate – with a portion of the gate penetrating the car and impaling the driver. As Engine 22’s crew checked the driver for injuries; they determined the driver was no longer impaled and worked quickly to package (during a downpour) the patient for transport by MEDIC. Huntersville Police assisted by holding tarps over the patient as HFD crews prepared the patient for MEDIC’s arrival. MEDIC arrived shortly thereafter and the patient was quickly transferred to MEDIC for quick transport to CMC-Main.

Additional investigation determined the patient was exiting the school’s stadium when the vehicle struck the gate. The pole broke off, passed through the vehicles headlight, engine compartment, fire all and into the passenger compartment, impaling the driver on the right side, just above the hip.

STATION 1 RESPONDS TO A FATAL ROLL OVER MVA

Saturday, August 30, 2014  Just after 2am, Huntersville Station 1 was dispatched for a report of a serious motor vehicle accident on McCoy Road, west of Hambright Road. Engine 1 arrived on scene to find a single vehicle accident, sitting on its passenger side with the driver already out of the vehicle (after being ejected), standing in the roadway. The Passenger was still seat belted inside the car. Engine 1’s crew immediately went to work; stretching bumper mounted hydraulic Combination tool to the car as other firefighters removed the windshield using a glass master. MEDIC arrived on scene as Huntersville crews worked to access the patient. MEDIC quickly determined that the passenger was deceased as a result of injuries received during the rollover accident. Huntersville Fire immediately ceased extrication and allowed Huntersville Police to begin investigation of the scene. Huntersville Fire remained on scene for several hours assisting the Huntersville Police with the investigation and providing scene lighting.



Huntersville Fire crews were released from the scene at 5:30am. We are sad to report that the deceased passenger, Caleb William Reid (20 yrs of age), was the nephew of one of our veteran firefighters; bringing the tragedy even closer to home. The driver, Evan Matthew Purtill (23 yrs of age), was arrested and charged with Felony Death by Vehicle.

STATION 1 RUNS A FIRE IN CORNELIUS

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 1:17pm Huntersville Station 1 was dispatched to assist Cornelius Fire and Davidson Fire with a reported Garage Fire in the 9600 block of Bailey Rd in Cornelius. Crews responding reported a large column of smoke off in the distance and upgraded the call to working while enroute. Cornelius Fire arrived on scene first with heavy fire showing from the rear of a three story town home and quickly climbing the three stories to the attic. Cornelius immediately stretched an attack line to the rear and began fire attack while additional lines were taken inside to the second and third floors. Cornelius Ladder 4 made the roof and opened it up as interior crews made the attic to stop the fire. Due to the aggressive attack the fire was stopped at the town home of origin. However an actively gas leak at the rear of the home kept firefighters busy until the gas company could arrive and stop the leak. The fire appears to have started at the rear of the home, near the garage and some vehicles. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office is investigating.
 
The town home of origin suffered significant damage and is close to a total loss. Crews remained on scene assisting the fire marshal and mopping up hot spots.
 
Huntersville crews remained on scene until 3:08pm.

BACK 2 SCHOOL SAFETY TIPS FROM THE VILLE

Sunday, August 24, 2014  With the summer ending and school starting this week we are providing some Back to School Safety Tips.

According to NC Department of Public Instruction Transportation Services The most dangerous part of a students day is "when students are boarding and exiting the bus". For the past four years (during the state's one day stop arm count), North Carolina school bus drivers reported that over 3,000 vehicles illegally passed their stopped buses on A SINGLE DAY. In the most troubling cases, drivers reported (83 instances in 2013-14) that motorists passed the bus on the right side – where students are loading and unloading. Since 1999, 13 students have been killed while boarding or exiting a school bus; and four of those deaths occurred in the 2012-13 school year alone. North Carolina law requires motorists to stop and remain stopped while the bus has its stop sign and flashing red lights engaged.

With the driver behavior mentioned previously coupled with the amount of drivers rushing to and from work - also distracted by smart phones; we want to get the word out to raise awareness and protect our little residents of the Ville as they head off to school.

Did you know that 82% of all adults admit to using their smart phone while driving and that 1.6 Million accidents are caused by distracted driving each year? Some scary statistics. Please do your part to keep our kids safe this year. Please read and share our safety tips.

As always - if you need us this year - we WILL be there!
