The Johns Creek Fire Department has named Brantley Floyd as the "Firefighter of the Quarter" for the last quarter of 2013.
"Brantley Floyd is very deserving of this honor," said Johns Creek Fire Chief Jeff Hogan. "He sets a great example for his fellow firefighters. Brantley has an exceptional commitment to the fire service and works extremely hard."
A native of Free Home, Ga., Floyd began his firefighting career in 1999 with the Fulton County Fire Department and served what is now Johns Creek as well as the South Fulton area. Floyd, a Ball Ground resident, joined the JCFD when it launched in October 2008 and is currently the Operator of Engine 61 at Fire Station 61 off Medlock Bridge Parkway.
"I'm very humbled and honored to receive such recognition from my fire department and from those that I share the duty with each day," said Floyd. "I strive to carry out a duty beside some of the most knowledgeable people in this profession and I continue to learn from and broaden my own knowledge in the fire service."
Floyd, who is married to his wife, Benita, of 24 years, has two daughters and enjoys spending time with his family, serving his church, and hunting.
