St. Johns Fire Chief Colleen Walz has emphasized the need for people to stay in their homes. Calls have been received from people who get stranded with vehicles stalled in deep water. Understand that SJFD must allocate its resources according to its assessment of received calls. As we are being spared from the worst flooding, we are responsible for avoiding unnecessary risks that could add to the extraordinary demands on first responders. AVOID DRIVING. IF YOU MUST DRIVE, DO NOT ENTER WATER OF UNKNOWN DEPTH.
