I wanted to say thank you to all of the responders who came out to the Farmers Market last Saturday 7/8 in Downtown Statesville! An elderly woman wrecked her car pretty bad while pulling out of the market. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt during the incident that could of been much worse. The EMS, Fire Dept. and Police were quick to the scene and took care of Mrs. Gillespie who arrived home later that day with no serious injuries. It was a scary moment when it all happened, but the responders showed up and took care of everything. Everyone and Mrs. Gillespie Thank you!

Thank you so much for stepping up today to protect our children at NIHS! Thank you for putting your lives on the line to much sure our babies are safe… thank you for giving this momma the assurance she needed to get thru this trying day. It was hard sending my boy to school today but we knew we needed to take a stand against all the bad…. against all my being I sent him to school hoping that sending him would send a message to those out there that thought using fear would get them an easy day off. I am so thankful and grateful that you guys showed up to give us parents comfort and most of all give the students the comfort to get thru another school day. When my son got to school he texted telling me he felt more than safe…. that there was no way anyone could get near the students today… “mom, there are cops everywhere! There is no way anyone could hurt us. I feel more than safe here.”
Thank you so so so much! Thank u for all that u guys do… for all the sacrifices you and ur families make to keep Iredell county safe! 😍

Last year, my best friend was around the wrong crowd, and ended up being in extreme danger. She could have died, but thanks to first responders she was taken to the hospital where she made a full recovery. I could have lost my best friend if it had not been for you, and I can’t imagine a life without being able to know that if my best friend, or my family, or even I was in trouble, I could count on first repsonders that sacrifice so much to save lives. Thank you so much!! <3

On March 1 2003, my sister and i were on the way to visit our father in Charlotte after a major surgery. We were struck head on by an oncoming car on Clontz Hill Road. Our car caught fire and we were trapped. Our rescuers, at first, were both men named Jamie Clontz, the elder being in the Troutman fire dept. Later came the Troutman Rescue squad and fire dept with the jaws of life. We owe our lives to both Jamie’s and the brave men that helped in our rescue. The EMS attendants and staff at Iredell Memorial hospitals that did everything they could to keep us alive. I have never said thank you, but i am eternally grateful for all you did for me and my sister. You put your lives in the line of danger every day, and i am so grateful for all of you. Thank you. My sister and i have life, a different normal but good lives because of you. With all my heart i wish all of God’s blessings to each and every one of you.

We had a fire in our bathroom after an exhaust fan shorted out. The fire department arrived quickly and were not only very efficient they were kind and considerate as well. The ceiling in the bathroom had to be knocked down to eliminate the chance of the fire restarting later and they kept apologizing for the mess. I was just thankful for the amazing job they were doing. My smoke detectors weren’t working and they were thoughtful enough to come back and install new ones for me. I will forever be thankful to all the men who came out that day and went the extra mile to insure our family’s safety. May you all be blessed beyond measure.

Iredell County Rescue
From:E. Hanson

It’s been awhile since this happened, but I never got to really say thank you. After calling 911 because an 8 week old kitten fell in a storm drain, I was eventually passed to animal control. Two officers came out to help which led to the fire department coming out and using the jaws of life to help move the storm drain. The officer then pulled the kitten out which saved his life and saved me from the wrath of my wife. Many years later this cat is still going strong and brings joy to my family on a daily basis. So THANK YOU Animal Control officers of Iredell County for saving little William on that day in September!!!
