Due to an accident at Lambert Hill on Highway 7, if you currently don’t have power, it will probably be out for at least 3-4 hours. Deep East Texas Electric told us they should have it back on sometime this afternoon. Minor injuries from the accident. Sorry for the inconvenience. For the safety of first responders and power company workers, please slow down driving through this area. Thank you!

After almost three months of giving up their Tuesday evening, one entire Sunday and most of today, nine of your 269 boys earned their EMR certification today. This allows us to respond on medical calls and work in tandem with Allegiance EMS to provide emergency care ahead of their arrival. This should help significantly with response time, because we don’t have to drive from Center to get on scene. Thanks to Chief Mike Simmons and his team at Kilgore College Fire Academy for working with us to provide the training.

We had a great week at the 90th Annual Texas Municipal Fire/ Rescue Training School, held in College Station Texas. Joaquin VFD took three students. Nat Rodgers took Firefighting Phase III, Michael Bates took Fire Pump Maintenance, and Assistant Chief Jeremy Boyett took Fire Safety Officer I. In addition, Rusty Wilson completed his third year as an instructor on Project 72/ 73, SCBA in Firefighting Phase I, and Stephen Ewing completed his seventh year on Project 50, Interior Structural Burn Complex in Firefighting Phase II. The Joaquin VFD is proud to be the leader in fire/ rescue training in Shelby County!

The show of love and respect for our friend Chief Rusty Canton today was overwhelming. We would like to thank Shannon and the rest of Rusty’s family for the opportunity to be a part of it. Dean Register, thank you for making it all about Rusty. Everything you said about him was spot on. Bella, you were eloquent and beautiful and I know he is so proud of the young lady you’ve become. Shannon, the pain you’re feeling is more than any of us can imagine, but you seem to be handling it with more grace and strength than one person has in them. You and your kids will remain in our thoughts and prayers. Ryder, your sense of humor is refreshing, probably because it’s so much like Rusty. Tim, your words were comforting and inspiring, and the song was amazing. To all of the first responders, I lost count of all of the different departments and agencies represented, but it was an honor to stand among you. I’d like to say a special thank you to the various departments in Desoto and Sabine Parishes who brought their trucks out to line the route and pay their respects. Also, it did our hearts well to see the citizens do the same. We will continue to remember all of Rusty’s family and the Fire District #1 family through the coming months. The impact of his absence will be felt for a long time, but thanks in no small part to him, the people tasked with carrying on are up to the challenge. As always, the 269 Boys are a phone call or page away, and it won’t take us long to get across that river.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

Today we are hurting for our extended family across the river. Chief Rusty Canton passed away this morning. Rusty was the perfect example of a true public servant, and a firefighter to the bottom of his great big heart. Our entire Joaquin/ Logansport community has lost a treasure. To our brothers at Desoto Fire District #1, we are here for you, just like Chief and all of you are always here for us. R.I.P. Chief. You will be missed.

Okay folks we’re going to try this again. Our original post was removed due to the type of items we were advertising. We have four of these “forbidden” items, and we will be glad to give you all the details on them if you contact us via messenger. To keep our post up there, I’m only going to name the donors of each item, except for the three items that are allowed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we will make sure we get tickets to anyone who wants to purchase them. We would once again like to thank all of these sponsors for their generous donations. Again, please feel free to message us here on our page for more details and to purchase tickets.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Patriot's Day Program tomorrow, 10:00 am, Veterans Memorial, Historic Courthouse.
The East Texas District is interested in conducting our Fall Meeting on October 12th, in Joaquin, TX. Let us know if you are interested, we can have a Board Member or two come up and sit down to discuss the details.
Would like to thank the Joaquin Volunteer Fire Department for coming out last night 3/15/19 and putting out the woods that were on fire behind my mobile home on 3340 in Joaquin and also to the neighbor that stopped and told us the woods were on fire. If not for him stopping and telling us and then going out there with my brother n law (I'm disabled) and literally stomping out most of the fire with his feet and a shovel my home would probably not be here today..Thank You Dale Jones
The Burn Ban for the City of Joaquin and Shelby County has been lifted. Jeremy Boyett Asst. Chief/ Fire Marshal Joaquin Vol. Fire Dept.
At the meeting this morning, the Shelby County Commissioner’s Court REINSTATED the COUNTY WIDE BURN BAN due to continuing dry conditions. Outdoor burning is once again prohibited. Thanks for your cooperation.
Hello this is Justin Mott with Center Radio I am trying to find out information about the wreck that occurred on Wednesday night that knocked out the power in Joaquin.
Although Shelby County is not currently under a burn ban, the Joaquin VFD would like to encourage all residents to use extreme caution when burning. We are not lobbying for a burn ban. That is strictly at the discretion of the County Judge and the Commissioner’s Court. They do a good job of deciding when to implement such measures. However, the cold weather and multiple frosts we have seen this winter have left an abundance of dead vegetation, which only needs a spark to ignite a fire. On windy days like today, these fires can spread quickly. A 5 mph wind can push a fire across acres of pasture within minutes. If at all possible, please wait until a calm day to do any burning. As always, the JVFD stands ready to respond to any emergency in our community. We thank you for your support.
Sabine River Bridge is starting to freeze. Salt truck is on the way. Also the main roads are ok for now. County roads and roads least traveled you need to use caution on.
