The city posted to Facebook, “The Johns Creek Fire Department’s (JCFD) new 9,000 square-foot Fire Station 64 is officially in service! Mayor Mike Bodker, Mayor Pro Tem Lenny Zaprowski, and Council members Brian Weaver, John Bradberry, and Erin Elwood, and Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann attended the station’s grand opening yesterday, which was capped off by a traditional fire truck “push-in.” The new station, located on the south side of Kimball Bridge Road between Webb Bridge Way and Jones Bridge Road, features three bays for emergency equipment, a community room, a generator, and its own 1,000-gallon diesel fuel tank to fuel all JCFD fire apparatus.”
