They saved my life on July 9, 1995, when I had my first massive heart attack. I am forever grateful.

I am not sure the circumstances behind this but Jeremy said he had a patient today who's vehicle was on empty. He got the vehicle to cash station and paid for their gas.

I love that because there are police officers you can have heros! :)

They have been a part of my life and career for a long time. They do their job, on and off the clock, without hesitation. They work hard and play hard! Glad to know we are in good hands in LS!!

A bunch of great guys and gals that love what they do and love the community they serve, we the citizens of LS appreciate and thank you. May God protect you as you protect us

That I am married to one of them!!❤️😘🤗

2 words...Ed Delaney!

They all have the biggest hearts. You guys have one of the hardest jobs out there. It doesn’t matter if your on or off the job your always there for one another.. I’m proud to call you family for the past 19 years..

Back in 2006, they were called to my home when my father was alive - several times. My father had lymphoma cancer and was on hospice. Each time, they were amazing with my two young children, my mom who had Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and, most definitely with my dad. They even changed out the batteries of my smoke detector that is on a 20 foot ceiling, when they were there dealing with my dad, and saw I was trying to change the batteries before the incident. They also were called on my daughter’s 2nd birthday when she couldn’t breathe. That’s when we found out she had asthma. Thank you to LS Firefighters. ❤️ We love you!

They are always ready and willing to jump in and help, on AND off the clock! Some of the best people I know... (and I’m married to one so I might be a little partial! 😃)

Your always there to help whoever might be in need ! ❤️❤️❤️

They are always there if needed, outstanding professional individuals that put their life on the line, each and everyday!

Can count on them being there when you need them

With 4 policemen and 3 firemen in the family, what’s not to like?

Nap time and video games....

They show the utmost respect and care for the people they help. Raise money for our community, teach fire safety to the children, save lives and risk thier own. These men and women are Heros. nothing less.

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.
Today begins National EMS Week. Did you know? The LSFD has 6 ambulances (known as Rescues in Lee's Summit) that are staffed 24/7/365? The department ran 10,500 calls last year and over 80% of those calls were for medical emergencies. But don't fret, ALL of our front line apparatus are staffed with at least one paramedic and ALL personnel are trained to the EMT level as a minimum so you will always get the highest level of care possible. If you see us out and about this week, give us a wave or a smile and say hello. We're here to serve YOU! Have a great week everyone and please be safe.
We work with them each and every day and the citizens of Lee's Summit and the surrounding communities are fortunate to have some of the best in the area at the three hospitals here in Lee's Summit. Thank you to our nurses. Happy National Nurses Week!!!
Better late than never. Those April showers that bring May flowers have finally come in a BIG way for the next few days. Please be safe and drive smart. You're not saving time if you never make it home.
Bryan’s park is looking good this morning on what would have been his 45th birthday. He’s always with us, but we pause today to remember him. Happy Birthday Brother.
This morning the Lee's Summit Public Health and Safety Advisory Board along with volunteers from our own fire department and IAFF Local 2195, Lee's Summit Medical Center, St. Luke's East, the R7 School District, TMC Lakewood, and city management are hosting a "Hands-Only" CPR training at the Gamber Center for our citizens. In cardiac arrest, time is muscle and the longer the heart and brain are without oxygen, the lower the survival rate. Statistics have shown that "Hands-Only" CPR can buy the patient valuable time until EMS arrives. Please consider taking one of these FREE 1 hour classes in the future. YOU could make a difference in someone's life.
On behalf of the members of Local 2195 - Lee's Summit Firefighters Association, we would like to send our prayers and sincerest condolences to the Kansas City Police Department on the loss of one of their own by suicide. No one should be alone in their fight against depression and we want EVERYONE to know that there is always someone you can talk to.
Eight members of IAFF Local 2195 join over 1600 other members of International Association of Fire Fighters in LA to network, gain knowledge and improve their leadership abilities and enhance their survival tactics on the fireground. This was done, NOT with taxpayer money, but through our own union dues so that we ensure that the citizens of Lee's Summit are safe. It's just another way that we go the extra step for those we care about the most.
