City of Lee’s Summit Selects Rick Poeschl as Fire Chief

After a national search and extensive interviews with staff and community-wide stakeholders, the City of Lee’s Summit proudly announces the selection of Rick Poeschl as the new fire chief.  There will be a swearing-in ceremony held in the coming weeks.

Poeschl has been serving as the City’s acting fire chief of the department of 144 employees since the retirement of Keith Martin in September 2014. 

 “I am honored to be chosen as the chief of the Lee’s Summit Fire Department and am excited about our future.  The department is made up of a great group of dedicated personnel committed to providing service excellence.  Our department continues to strive to achieve accreditation through the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) by measuring our work against industry standards of excellence – basically holding up a mirror and asking “how are we doing?” We are looking for continual improvement in our service delivery, and have made strides in those areas,” said Poeschl.
