04/28/2021

The officers and members of Progress send our thoughts, prayers, and condolences to the family of Captain McGarvey and the membership of the Waxhaw Volunteer Fire Department during this time of loss. Captain McGarvey had just finished his shift and was driving home when he suffered a medical emergency. Captain McGarvey’s passing will be listed as a Line of Duty Death.

You may recall, Waxhaw made a few trips to Progress to look over the old Tower before purchasing it, refurbing it, and giving it new life while keeping some Progress things on it and using the hashtag “Progressmade”.

It is with a heavy heart that Waxhaw Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad announce the sudden passing of Captain Ronald McGarvey on 04/26/2021 around 08:09am. Captain McGarvey suffered a fatal medical emergency after the completion of his shift while in transit to his home. A Union County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated care while crews from Waxhaw Fire Department responded to Captain McGarvey to render aid. Despite their best efforts, crews were unable to revive Captain McGarvey.

Chief Sharpe will consider Captain McGarvey’s death a Line of Duty Death in accordance with the Hometown Heroes Survivors Benefits Act and the Dale Long PSOB Improvements Act of 2012. There will be media availability at Waxhaw Volunteer Fire Department located at 3500 Waxhaw Parkway, Waxhaw NC, 28173. This availability will begin promptly at 18:00 (6PM). Fire Chief Greg Sharpe will be present making a statement. Chief Sharpe will also take questions from News Agencies present at that time.

Everyone remembers to change their clocks, but do you remember to change the batteries in your smoke detector?

Smoke detectors save lives, don’t just look at it on the wall or ceiling and say “yup we have one”. Protect your family and yourself and change the batteries.

Remember to not just throw the batteries in the trash or the “junk” drawer in the kitchen either, cover the terminals with tape to help prevent fires.

***1st Due Accident with 2 Trapped***

Overnight the Duty Officer from Progress was dispatched for a Transformer Arcing in the area of N Progress Ave and Valley Rd. As the Duty Officer went responding the assignment was upgraded to an outside fire as communications was receiving calls from motorist on Interstate 81 reporting a grass fire off the highway and multiple other callers reporting a large blue flash. While Engine 32 and the Duty Officer were responding a large power outage was found and communications started getting calls for an electrical issue at a hotel and alarms activated and at the same time the police department found an accident.
Units from Progress arrived and found a single vehicle off the road with a pole sheared off with wires down around the vehicle and the wires on fire. Command requested PP&L to the scene and to confirm the shut down of power to the grid as well as start Rescue 37 to the accident and the next due Engine Company to the hotel to investigate the fire alarm. Engine 33 and 30 were dispatched and handled the alarm at the hotel.
Crews from 32 and 37 were given the go ahead from a PP&L rep that arrived and confirmed all lines were no longer energized. Crews worked and had both patients extricated in under 10 minutes after stabilizing the telephone pole and lifting it off the car some and removing a door. Engine 33 was requested when they cleared the fire alarm to position on the Interstate and provide lighting as well as check for an additional patients since it was reported there was a 3rd patient in the vehicle. No additional patients were found and Engine 33 provided manpower with moving patients from the vehicles through the wires to EMS.

Thank you to the fire police units who responded and assisted with shutting down the roadway during the incident.
