Station 64 is now in service after the Johns Creek (GA) Fire Department recently hosted a grand opening, reports gwinnettdailypost.com.
The new 9,000-square-foot 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 fire department apparatus.
The city said that initially one fire apparatus will operate from Station 64 with four fire department members assigned for each of three shifts.
It will house Quint 64, the department’s 107-foot aerial ladder truck. The dual-purpose truck provides a flow capacity of up to 1,500 gallons-per-minute, and the ability to reach up to 107 feet of vertical reach and 100 feet of horizontal reach. The truck also features a 400-gallon water tank and 25-gallon foam tank.
