May 15, 2023 - Over the week of May 7th through 13th the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department had just 2 calls. Here’s a summary of the week’s events.
Thursday morning at 12:03am a page was received for a fall patient at a residence on County Road 3485. The JVFD medical team responded but had apparently received the page late as Allegiance EMS had already checked out the patient and was clearing the scene.
Friday evening at 6:22pm a call came in regarding an elderly patient having a dizzy spell at a residence on County Road 3203. The JVFD medical team responded to assist Allegiance EMS with assessing the patient before determining if the patient needed transportation.
In other news, the Joaquin VFD will be hosting a blood drive Saturday, May 27th from 9am to 2pm at JVFD Central Station on the square in downtown Joaquin. Donors can sign up ahead of time by scanning the QR code on the poster below or on the day of the drive. Those who donate will receive a free “Power of You” towel from LifeShare Blood Center. Everyone who can donate is encouraged to do so and help save a life. Another way to sign up online - https://donor.lifeshare.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/249189
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.
