The Lee's Summit Fire Fighter Charities and IAFF Local 2195 were happy to donate $1000 to the St. Luke's Image Renewal Center. The money donated was raised through the sale of pink Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts that were worn during the month of October 2016. The Image Renewal Center works directly with local residents suffering the effects of cancer treatment.
Your off-duty fire fighters spent Dec 15th, 16th and 17th on the corner of 3rd St and Douglas in Lee's Summit soliciting donations for the Needy Family Fund. We were able to collect over $21,000 for the Lee's Summit Social Services. We would like to thank the wonderful community of Lee's Summit for contributing.
We would also like to thank the Lions Club for providing us lunches and the local businesses/citizens who brought us coffee and hot chocolate. The temperatures were frigid on Saturday and the roads were icy. But we toughed it out to with your help.
Fire Ops 101 wrapped up May 15th at Fire Station 7. The program was co-sponsored by Local 2195 and the Lee's Summit Fire Department. Thank you to all who participated to make this year another success. Click here to view some pictures.
Member of Local 2195 will once again participate in the KC Memorial Stair Climb. On September 11th, 2016, 343 firefighters will climb 110 floors in downtown KC to memorialize the firefighters who died in the World Trade Center attacks. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Surviving Spouse and Family Endowment Fund (SAFE) that provides immediate financial assistance to local families of police officers, fire fighters, or emergency services personnel who die in the line of duty. We are proud to have had good representation from the membership of Local 2195 in past years and are looking forward to the climbing again in 2016.

Political Action Committee
Fire Fighters for Progress
The Local has established a Political Action Committee also known as a PAC fund. The PAC gives our members the ability to contribute financially to political causes and candidates that support our Local. Many have asked why a PAC is necessary and wonder how funds are spent. For the answers to those questions and more, Local members can click here.
Often, in a medical emergency, patients are unable to communicate their medical history to the medical personnel who are summoned to help. It is important for responders to have the best information to treat their patients. There are many ways to communicate this information by using the File of Life, Vial of Life or other documents that can be filled out prior to the emergency. Local 2195 has developed a very simple form that can be printed from our website so that some basic information can be recorded. Click here for more info.....
