Happy Easter Ken !!

Congratulations on a wonderful career, Sgt. Powelson. Your dedicated service to the community, especially our youth, will be greatly missed. Go enjoy a great retirement.Today, we celebrate the retirement of Sergeant Don Powelson. Sgt. Powelson started his career with the LSPD in 1984 as a Patrol Officer; he was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2005. During his time with us Sergeant Powelson worked in the Patrol Division and spent the last 9 years of his career supervising the Juvenile Unit and Training Units. Sergeant Powelson's work in the Juvenile unit allowed him to build community partnerships with our school district as he worked with our School Resource Officers and D.A.R.E. Officers.

Thanks for all the good work you have done over the years, but especially with the youth programs. Enjoy your retirement!

Congratulations on your retirement. 🎉🎉

Congrats Don. I appreciate all your service but mostly working Drug Take Back Days with me. Enjoy!

Congratulations, Officers Frizzell and Frizzell on your well-earned retirements. Your 50+ years of combined, dedicated service to our citizens has not gone unnoticed and will be greatly missed.Today, we celebrated a first at the LSPD, we retired a husband and wife team!

Captain Don Frizzell served the citizens of Lee’s Summit for over 27 years of his 29 year career. Captain Frizzell worked as investigator in our Drug Unit as well as serving as a polygraph examiner during his time with us. After being promoted to Captain he served as a commander for several different units; his final assignment was the supervision of our Communications Unit.

Barb Frizzell began her career with the city as an Animal Control Officer. She transferred to the Police Department after just a few years and spent the remainder of her career working at our front desk as a Police Services Officer. PSO Frizzell enjoyed working with citizens on a daily basis to take reports and help them solve problems; in addition she was an integral part of our fleet and vehicle management team and assisted with the department’s hiring processes.

Between the two of them they have a total of over 50 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Lee’s Summit. We are sad to see them go but we wish them the best in retirement!

Our neighbors along the Lee's Summit/Cass Co boundary had a near miss from a large grass fire last week but the great efforts of our members and some mutual aid departments saved several structures from being lost.

Just a friendly reminder that burning without an approved permit from our Fire Prevention division is against city ordinance anytime of the year.
Do you know someone who's looking to join our fantastic department? Let them know....WE'RE HIRING! Please follow the link below to apply!
In all seriousness folks, over the next 7-10 days our area will be experiencing temp's that we haven't seen in many years. Some reports say wind chills this weekend could be as low as -30's. Here are some safety guidelines for you to follow #ForYourSafety. 

1) See Bernie?.... don't be like Bernie. Stay inside.

2) IF you must go outside, dress in layers and do so in very short increments. Hypothermia and frostbite can set in very quickly.

3) Stay dry! Having wet clothes from playing in the snow and/or sweating because of too many layers will cause hypothermia and frostbite. 

4) Heated seats are great as long as the car has power. Lose that power and..... well....... 
Best to always have a heavy coat, gloves, stocking cap, scarf, etc in the vehicle with you in the event that you become stranded on the side of the road. 

5) Make sure your vehicle has a full tank of gas and have a winter safety kit in case you get stranded. Fully charged cell phone, blankets, hand warmers, emergency safety lighting, small shovel, etc. are all "must have's" in the winter. 

6) Make sure space heaters are at least 3' from all flammable items and that they have an auto shut-off feature in case they get knocked over or get too hot.

7) Portable propane heaters should only be used in WELL VENTILATED areas. They are not meant for indoors and can cause carbon monoxide poisoning which can lead to death.
Our crews have been out on calls over the past few hours and reporting treacherous road conditions as they begin re-freezing. I-470 and 50/350 Hwy have seen multiple accidents. We ask that, unless you absolutely must get out, PLEASE stay home #ForYourSafety and ours. Thank you and be SAFE everyone!!!!
Heating is the second leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries, and the third leading cause of home fire deaths. Local fire departments responded to an estimated average of 48,530 fires involving heating equipment per  year in 2014-2018, accounting for 14% of all reported home fires during this time. These fires resulted in annual losses of 500 civilian deaths, 1,350 civilian injuries, and $1.1 billion in direct property damage.
Cancer is now the leading cause of death in firefighters. In 2019, more than 75% of the names added to the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Wall of Honor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, were of members who died from occupational cancer. In 2018 research by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that firefighters are 9 percent more likely to have a cancer diagnosis, and 14 percent more likely to die of cancer, than the general population.
Did you know that nearly 1/3 of all Christmas tree fires occur in the month of January? Time to take it down and get ready for SPRING!!! Play it safe #ForYourSafety.
Like the columns of Greece, "Duke" Hawthorne has stood the test of time, proudly serving the citizens of Lee's Summit for over 35 years. His knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed but his retirement has been been well-earned and deserved. Congratulations, Duke, on your life's next chapter. Your brothers and sisters of the Lee's Summit Firefighters Association wish you the best.
The weather this week will provide challenges for all of us, but more so for our elderly citizens who try their best to do everyday tasks like shoveling snow, picking up mail, and putting out trash. If you have one of those neighbors please help them out.
Today we remember and honor the 2,403 military personnel and civilians killed during this horrible attack on our country. While the Japanese succeeded in temporarily breaking our defenses, they ultimately failed in their goal of defeating the U.S. and keeping our country out of the war. In the end, much like 9/11, the citizens of the U.S. became even more bonded in their resolve and patriotism to defeat those that believed that they could harm us.
Thank you to ALL public servants, military personnel both here and abroad, and retail workers for your dedication but please especially remember and pray for our B-shifters and those on overtime at the stations, our dispatchers, and our LSPD officers and all of the staff working in our hospitals during this time working tirelessly to keep our great Lee's Summit residents safe.
What a magnificent, picture-perfect night time launch. Best wishes and good luck to the crew of Resilience!!!
As a resident of Lee's Summit you SHOULD have and CAN have a voice in how the city progresses into the future. Here is your opportunity to give input. Please consider joining one of the upcoming Zoom video workshops from the luxury of your own home next week. Take a look and see how YOU can shape the future of our great city!!!
Let's all do our part but do it safely!!! Have a GREAT weekend everyone!
Today we honor our military veterans who have given so much for our country. Did you know that a large number of our firefighters and police officers in Lee's Summit came from the military and many of them are STILL reservists or active duty? In fact, we currently have two Lee's Summit Firefighters Association members on deployment. These men and women were born to serve and we shall never forget that regardless of being here in Lee's Summit or somewhere thousands of miles away from their families, they are ALWAYS serving #ForYourSafety. 

Thank you to all of our military veterans in LS public safety roles.
Time to turn your clocks back one hour on Saturday before you go to bed. On Sunday it's time to change the batteries and vacuum around your smoke detectors to get the dust bunnies out!!
First snow of the season in upon us. Everyone please be safe and make sure you're taking breaks to come inside and warm up and dry off. 
And don't lick the flag poles!!!!
This Saturday! National Drug Take-Back Day from 10 am-2 pm at Lee's Summit PD or Lee's Summit Medical Center. Please be responsible and dispose of expired or unneeded medications properly by participating in this great event.
Sunday, Oct. 4th begins National Fire Prevention Week. This year focuses on fire safety in the kitchen.
We made a vow 21 years ago to never forget.....

We still remember and miss you, Brother.
There are two times as many fires reported on Independence Day than on any other day. 50% of those are from fireworks. Please remember to follow Lee's Summit city ordinance on the  allowed shooting times and use of legal fireworks inside the city limits #ForYourSafety #IAFF #IAFFSafetyTips
A bit late in the day as we were spending time with our own families, but our members would like to wish a wonderful Father's Day to all of our citizens who take on the role as a dad. We'd also like to extend a special wish to our very own fathers of the LSFD who must be away from their families today while protecting our great city. Thank you for your commitment and dedication, dads.
Please get out and vote tomorrow. We know public safety is the #1 concern for our citizens on city surveys. These four candidates are endorsed by both the Lee's Summit Firefighters Association and Lee's Summit Police Officers Association because they are COMMITTED to public safety as well so we want to say "Thank You" in advance for your continued support because we, and they, will be there #ForYourSafety.
This week we honor all EMS responders for their sacrifices, especially during this time of uncertainty of what we could potentially walk in to and then potentially take home to our families. ALL of the roughly 155 members of the internationally accredited Lee's Summit Fire Department are well-trained Emergency Medical Technicians with over 65 of those being paramedics. We staff 6 Advanced Life Support med units full-time with the hopes that all 7 of our stations have med units in the near future #ForYourSafety. 

If you are interested in getting into the EMS field, here is a fantastic link to give you more information or feel free to call the fire department.
With all of the events of the world happening around us, it's easy to forget that we have an upcoming election on June 2nd. These candidates have continued to stand by us and we'd love for you to support them. It's not just for OUR safety, it's #ForYourSafety as well.
We support our Lee's Summit officers and during #NationalPoliceWeek we remember those LEO's that have given the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Thank you for serving and protecting us and all of the citizens of Lee's Summit.
