CITIZENS OF LEES SUMMIT AND HOA’S, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The City, Jackson County Health Department and Police Department are receiving daily notifications regarding non-compliance with Jackson County’s Stay-At-Home Executive Order within our neighborhoods. We all need to work together to ensure compliance with the stay-at-home order to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please remember, this is a stay-at-home order. This means YOUR home. Gatherings in driveways, cul-de-sacs and backyards have become popular. Remember, all social gatherings must be 10 or less people and you must maintain proper social distancing (six feet between others). This also includes our children.

There have also been reports of food/drink/treat trucks visiting neighborhoods with large groups of children and adults gathered around these trucks. Even for business conducted outside, it is critical to practice social distancing to stop the spread of the virus. Explain what six feet of healthy space means to our children and most of all, model social distancing for them.

Finally, it is great to go outside, get fresh air and enjoy the great weather - from a distance! City and county officials are urging HOA’s to consider temporary closure of playground areas. Not only do playgrounds create a place for children and adults to be too close to one another, playgrounds are high-touch areas where the virus can be easily spread.

If a business is not complying with Jackson County’s stay-at-home order, please notify the Jackson County Health Department at 816.404.6416 or online at form.jotform.com/200893915181155. Jurisdiction and enforcement in these matters begin with the Jackson County Health Department.

We are all making enormous sacrifices, but we are doing it for the right reason. Our number one priority is the health and safety of the community. We ask that you join us in Coming Together by Staying Apart! #TogetherLS

We MUST continue supporting our local Mom & Pop businesses by utilizing curbside or delivery services for things like meals.They play a vital role in our local economics especially in our beautiful downtown area. Today would be a great day to let them know we're there for them on #MomAndPopBusinessOwnersDay.

To reiterate we do NOT encourage folks to go out as families to patronize the businesses. PLEASE stay home and use the other services #ForYourSafety.

We've gone through many trials and tribulations in our country's history. We've ALWAYS come out better in the end because "United we Stand, Divided we Fall". This is just another bump in the road. Don't ever forget that we're here #ForYourSafety
As this pandemic progresses and tighter restrictions on quarantines continue to evolve, there are sure to be some very troubling times for many folks in our communities. PLEASE talk to and take care of each other but also make some time for your self.
Cleaning and disinfecting are good things IF done correctly. If not done properly they can be deadly. #ForYourSafety please refrain from these mixtures.
Don't forget, today is the Missouri primary election!! Everyone get out and do your civic duty!!
We're less than one week away from "Springing Forward" on those clocks. Do you know what else that means? Check your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors! 1) Change the batteries 2) Use the wand attachment on your vacuum and get those dust bunnies out of them (yes they can set off the detectors) 3) Check the manufactured date. If your detectors are more than 10 years old or have no date, it's time to change them Please remember, #ForYourSafety we'll be happy to assist in changing nuisance batteries or faulty detectors if they are sounding but we don't routinely install new detectors or new batteries throughout your home. If we did there'd be a lot of electricians without a job. ;-)
Are you prepared? There will be a statewide tornado drill tomorrow morning. We encourage you to practice with your family. Know WHERE to go, WHEN to go, WHAT the difference is between a watch and warning, HOW LONG long to stay in your safe area after the tornado has passed, and HOW to get out safely if your house is affected as there will likely be broken gas lines, charged electrical wiring, broken glass, exposed nails/screws, and sharp metal edges to navigate around.
Winter's in full force for the next couple of days. Be aware of your safety as hypothermia and frostbite can happen very quickly in the bitter cold windchills that we will experience and if you are planning on traveling make sure that you are fully prepared by stocking your vehicle with necessary supplies in the event you get stranded on the side of the road.
Many paramedics from LSFD are attending a 2 day course called Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS). The class will take place several times this month to allow for nearly all of our department medics to enhance our skills #ForYourSafety.
Congratulations to Jay Edson, youngest son of councilmember Phyllis Edson on receiving the rank of Eagle Scout this past Sunday. Way to go, young man!!!
Have a great snow day!! The hills should be perfect for sledding but be safe and follow these suggestions from @CIPAinjury
8 members of IAFF 2195 are attending the 2020 Affiliate Leadership Conference. It will be a great 3 days of learning and networking. Human Relations and Leadership are at the forefront of this years conference
That’s a wrap on the 2019 Boot Block. The men and women of IAFF 2195 along with the Chief Officers of the Lee’s Summit Fire Department are proud to announce a new record total of $31,642.00!!! We are so humbled by the generosity of our community. Thank you!
Day 3 is upon us. We have had a very successful 2019 Boot Block so far. If you find yourself in Lee’s Summit please stop by the intersection of SE 3rd and SE Douglas. Say Hi to your off-duty Fire Fighters and help us fill our boots for Lee’s Summit Social Services.
Our first day has come to an end. It has become a tradition for us to post our totals for the day. Your generosity and compassion humbles us every year. Thank you for a record first day!!! $10,384.00!
Tomorrow is the last day to fill the boot. Every hand full of change helps us get closer to breaking the record! Stop by 3rd and Douglas and give to the needy families in Lee's Summit.
Only two days left to help fill the boot. All proceeds stay in Lee's Summit and help needy families.
Don't forget to stop by 3rd and Douglas starting tomorrow to fill the boot.
First things first; A HUGE thank you to Battalion Chief Arby Todd (FD) and Master Police Officer John Easley (PD) for organizing such a wonderful event!!! 220 toys, 210 stocking stuffers, and SIX bicycles are sure going to make some Lee's Summit kiddo's happy this Christmas. Folks, this is just from the fire department alone!!! Our heroes in the PD have also done wonderful things with the toy collection!! Thank you to all of our firefighters and police officers and CITIZENS who took the time to purchase and bring in toys for the youth in Lee's Summit. You guys ROCK!! And yes, we beat our awesome police officers...... again!!!
Last year the Lee's Summit Community helped us raise over $30,000 dollars in three days. Help us break that record by filling the boot on Dec 19, 20, 21.
The fire service has always considered itself one big family and tonight many of our LSFD members and their "significant others" (shown here) came together and spent the evening with hundreds of our fellow Lee's Summit city employees and their families at the annual city Christmas party. A huge thank you to our city council, city management team, and Mayor Baird for allowing us the opportunity to unwind a bit and spend the evening together.
As we sit down tomorrow with our families and give thanks for all of the good things in our lives, let us not forget that many will be with their "second" family as their work never stops. Thank you to all of our public servants in and around Lee's Summit for keeping us safe during the holidays.
It’s been a great day with Lee’s Summit Fire Fighters Charities. Because of the hard work of our members and the unbelievable generosity of our community, we were able to donate $30,085 to Lee’s Summit Social Services. We feel extremely fortunate to be a part of this community. Thank you to everyone who donated at last year’s Needy Family Boot Block. We hope to see you at 3rd and Douglas Street in Lee’s Summit on December 19th, 20th and 21st 2019.
Lee’s Summit Fire Fighters Charities feels so fortunate to be able to donate $3,081.00 to Fight Dirty. They are a local organization that helps our community. Thank you to our members, Lee’s Summit Fire Department Chief Officers and all those that donated with a purchase of a special Breast Cancer Awareness shirt.
Good night, all. We can thank our veterans both here and afar for allowing us to sleep in peace tonight. 🇺🇸
There's still time to donate food for Lee's Summit Social Services! Swing by any fire station today to leave those last-minute food donations!
Some were too young to remember...Some never knew NO ONE should ever forget.
Help us stock the shelves at Lee's Summit Social Services by donating food and personal care items!
We LOVE Lee's Summit citizens and we know YOU love us. Please help us to help our community in other ways by participating in our Firefighter Challenge to assist Lee's Summit Social Services!!
July 15th, 1999. LODD Bryan C. Pottberg Today marks the 20th anniversary of his passing. While this day can bring tears and sadness, it is also a reminder for all of us to live a little more like Bryan did, with a huge smile no matter the situation. I did not know Bryan, but I see the impact he had on his Brothers and Sisters in the Fire Service, the Citizens he served, and his family he loved. IAFF 2195 is proud to do good work in his name with the Bryan C. Pottberg Memorial Golf Tournament. Proceeds become scholarships for area high school graduates who want to pursue a career in public safety. IAFF 2195 partners with Lee’s Summit Parks to offer the Bryan C. Pottberg Memorial Park. What a fun and safe park for our citizens to be able to take their children and families. Have a great day and smile like Bryan. Bryce Buchanan President IAFF 2195 Members of IAFF 2195 and family gather at Bryan C. Pottberg memorial Park
Today......we remember. 20 years ago the LSFD had its first and only line of duty death. We lost a friend and we lost a brother. But most importantly the community lost a firefighter/paramedic who had a passion for the job; a passion to help everyone and a true love for the kids. Many things have changed within our department over the years but the one thing that hasn't is our memories of such a wonderful, young man who was taken from us way too soon. Bryan we still miss you brother, but we know you'll always be with us.
