June 6, 2022 - Over the past week, and the transition from May to June, the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department received 5 calls. This week was free from fires as all 5 calls pertain to medical emergencies.
Starting early morning Thursday June 2nd, a call was received about an unresponsive person in their vehicle parked at the Quick Stop on the Haslam Strip.
Two additional calls came in on Thursday, one at 3:00pm for a Medical Alarm at a home on Cummings Street, and another at 4:19pm to set up a landing zone for a burn patient.
Next on Saturday, June 4th the JVFD were dispatched to County Road 3421 for a fall patient.
The final call for the week came in Sunday, June 5th, in regards to a seizure patient on County Road 3252.
The Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department works very closely with Allegiance EMS on nearly every medical call that comes in, wether it’s to assist on an ongoing emergency or to secure a patient until the EMS can arrive for pick-up. That said, the JVFD hopes everyone has a safe and enjoyable week going forward.
