Joaquin VFD Weekly Report for Sept. 18-24

September 26, 2022 - Over the week of September 18th through 24th the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department responded to just 3 calls. Here’s a summary of the week’s events.

The first call came in early on Wednesday morning in regards to smoke inside a home on County Road 3286. The JVFD responded to find the source before it could start a larger fire.

Later Wednesday evening another call came in about a brush fire on FM 139. The Joaquin VFD responded to the scene with a brush truck and made short work of the small fire.

The final call for the week came in Saturday afternoon for a man suffering from the high temperatures at the Joaquin football field. The JVFD EMR team responded to check out the patient and assist in getting him somewhere cooler. Allegiance EMS also responded to ensure he did not need transport by ambulance.

That will bring this report to a close. As always, the Joaquin VFD hopes everyone has a great and safe week ahead.
