June 5, 2023 - Over the week of May 28th through June 3rd the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department responded to 4 calls. Here’s a summary of the week’s events.

Tuesday afternoon at 3:10pm a call was received for an unresponsive 85 year old patient at a residence on FM 3082. Allegiance EMS was already on scene when the JVFD medical team arrived and the patient had been loaded into the ambulance.

Tuesday night at 11:31pm another call came in, this time for a COPD patient unable to catch their breath at a residence on Jackson Street. The JVFD medical team arrived on scene and collected the patient’s vitals before assisting Allegiance EMS with moving the patient into the ambulance.

Wednesday night at 8:26pm a page was received for a baby that had been knocked unconscious at the Bethlehem Church on Highway 7 East. Once the medical team arrived the young patient was awake and moving, but the mother opted to have him checked out at a hospital to be on the safe side.

Friday morning at 8:49am a call came in for a motor-vehicle accident involving 2 tractor trailers on Highway 84 East. One of the rigs had clipped the other causing a rollover in which the cab of the rolled over rig was detached from the frame. Once on scene, the JVFD went right to work extricating the driver from the detached cab and getting him to the ambulance where he could be transported to a landing zone that had been set up at the baseball field. From there he was taken by helicopter to an emergency room. The driver of the other tractor trailer was unharmed in the accident. 

With that, this edition of the report will come to a close. The Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department hopes everyone has a great and safe week ahead.
