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. @ChiefTForbes @LSPDPIO @LeesSummitPOA
To help address the shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment), Bennett Packaging in Lee’s Summit designed and produced 500 face shields for Lee's Summit first responders with equipment ordinarily used to manufacture boxes. All 500 shields were given to our police and fire departments. Thank you so much, Bennett Packaging for being such a great resource for our safety!!!
Thank you to our wonderful admins who keep our day to day LSFD operations running and keep us in check! There's only 3 of them but they are the absolute BEST and we can't thank them enough for all they do for us!
The members of the LSFFA know that we have the absolute best dispatchers in the entire KC Metro area and as the 2020 National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week comes to a close we'd like to end it on a very high note and recognize Communications Specialist Jamila Crawford (pictured left with Lead Comm's Spec Kim Harris and Comm's Spec Doug Boucher) for her recent award from the Mid-America Regional Council. Each year MARC hosts a telecommunicators dinner and award ceremony for dispatchers in the entire KC Metro area. This year Jamila took home the honor for Outstanding Training Performance. While their protocols and training have always been exceptional, Jamila has gone over and above and taken the LSFD emergency dispatch training guidelines to a whole new level which saves time in training new dispatchers but, more importantly, SAVES LIVES. From the members on the front lines to our members behind the scenes on the phones and radios, we say thank you for all you do for us and our citizens.
The members of @iaffLocal2195 and @LeesSummitFire can't do our job without our wonderful dispatchers. They dispatch not only for LSFD, but also SEVEN other surrounding agencies and no matter the circumstances, no matter the call volume, they are ALWAYS our calm before the storm. Thank you LSFD dispatchers for keeping us and the citizens of Lee's Summit safe 24/7/365. #PublicSafety #NPSTW2020 #911dispatchers #ThinGoldLine #IAM911
Happy Birthday to our brother in heaven, Bryan Pottberg. Today would have been his 46th birthday. You're still forever in our hearts and minds, buddy.
With our kids staying home right now, poison prevention should be of utmost importance. EFFECTIVE hand sanitizers contain at least 60% alcohol and can be dangerous if ingested. Please make sure your little ones are being supervised. #MakeSafeHappen #IAFFSafetyTips #ForYourSafety
Friends, we know it's getting tougher to get through this. You're not alone. We are ALL feeling the effects but we WILL get through it together. Please follow these simple suggestions and it absolutely does make things a bit easier. The members of the Lee's Summit Firefighters Association are in it for the long haul #ForYourSafety (and ours) because we <3 all of our followers. Please feel free to share these recommendations. If it helps only ONE person, it's a great thing.
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
