It is with deep sorrow to announce the death of Firefighter Brian Pottberg. Brian was a Firefighter/Dive Team member of the Lee's Summit, MO Fire Department. The Dive Team was conducting a training exercise this morning at an area lake when an accident occured. Rescue personnel desperately tried to resuscitate Brian, but he was pronounced dead at an area hospital. Please keep Brian's family and friends, as well as the men and women of the Lee's Summit Fire Dept., in your prayers.
