32 years ago today, 6 Kansas City firefighters were killed in what will forever be remembered as one of the worst multiple firefighter line of duty deaths in the country up to that point. As a result of this tragedy, many new standards and federal regulations were put into place for both public and firefighter safety.

KCFD Pumpers 30 & 41 were responding to a report of a truck on fire at a construction site.
*The following information was provided by The Kansas
City Star in a story last year.

From Pumper 30:
-Gerald C. Halloran, 57, had served more than 37 years and was
considering retirement at the end of 1988.
-Luther Eugene Hurd, 31, normally worked at Station 23 but
volunteered to fill in at Station 30 that night. He was a 10-year
veteran of the department.
-Thomas Fry, 41, and had been a firefighter for more than 15 years.

From Pumper 41:
-James H. Kilventon Jr., 54, had served more than 27 years on the
force.
-Michael R. Oldham, 32, an 11-year veteran of the department. His
father had been a firefighter.
-Robert D. McKarnin, 42, had spent almost 20 years with the KCFD -
serving all that time at Station 41.

KCFD's "Hazmat 71" is numbered in honor of those members who came from Stations 30 & 41.

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.

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.
