Fire Chief Addresses City Council Over Storm Warning Issues

Lee’s Summit Fire Chief Rick Poeschl addressed the City Council prior to the public comments section of the March 9 meeting over concerns from Monday night’s EF-1 tornado, and the warning sirens that did not sound.

The chief told the council that the Lee’s Summit Fire Department’s standard operating procedures Monday night lead to the decision not to sound the tornado sirens, however, upon further review and feedback from the public, the department has decided to update those procedures.

Effective immediately, all notification systems, including outdoor warning sirens, will be sounded whenever a tornado warning has been declared by the National Weather Service for southern Jackson County or northern Cass County. As is currently policy trained storm spotters will be deployed as well. “This is in the best interest of the safety of the public,” Poeschl said. “The fire department strives to uphold public trust.”
