October 3, 2022 - The final week of September was a busy one for the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department with 6 separate outings. Here is a summary of the weeks events. 

Starting mid-day on Sunday the JVFD was dispatched to a seizure patient on Connell Ferry Road. The EMR team responded to check out the patient before DeSoto EMS could arrive to transport.

Monday the EMR team would be called to Caroll Street for a person having chest pains. The patient was transported by Allegiance EMS.

Wednesday had 2 calls, with the earliest in regards to a man choking at the Ram House Cafe. Upon the EMR teams arrival the choking patient’s blockage had been cleared and he was doing well.

The later call on Wednesday was for a hay bale on fire in a pasture off of FM 2428. The JVFD responded to extinguish the fire with a brush truck and a tanker for additional water supply.

Friday morning the EMR team was called to the post office in Joaquin for an unresponsive man in the parking lot. They administered CPR until Allegiance EMS could arrive.

The last call came in late Saturday evening for a 2 vehicle crash at the intersection of FM 139 and Highway 7 East. The JVFD provided traffic control and checked out the people involved in the crash before Allegiance EMS could arrive.

With that, this report will come to a close. As always the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department hope everyone has a great and safe week ahead.
