Joaquin VFD Reports 2 Calls for Thanksgiving Week

November 28, 2022 - The week of November 20th through 26th, in addition to having the Thanksgiving holiday, yielded 2 calls for the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department.

Here’s a summary of the weeks events.

The first call came in Sunday afternoon for a mutual aid request from DeSoto Fire District 1 on a brush fire located on Belle Bower Road. The JVFD was en route to the fire when a second page was received that stated the fire was under control and Joaquin could return home.

The other call for the week came in Monday evening for an unresponsive male at his residence on Highway 7 East. The first to arrive on scene reported that the man still had a pulse, but soon after the pulse faded. Allegiance EMS arrived a few minutes later and the man was eventually pronounced deceased. Deputies from Shelby County Sheriff’s Office took control of the scene and the JVFD were cleared to leave.

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