Voluntary Evacuation

I would want to urge everyone who lives in low lying areas, especially, the
lake areas and near the Sabine River to be cautious and if possible evacuate
until the rain and flooding ends.  We are not calling for a mandatory
evacuation at this time but a voluntary one.  Shelby County, City of
Joaquin, Joaquin VFD, American Red Cross, and other organizations are
working together to organize a shelter for people that have no family or
friends to stay with.  If you need help with evacuating, please contact your
local Volunteer Fire Department or law enforcement.  If your home is secure
and you do not need to evacuate, please stay at home.  Please do not put
yourself and/or emergency personal in danger.  Please be smart and cautious,
the life you save may be your own.
