Letter from the Chief:

The Johns Creek Fire Department is dedicated to providing the Johns Creek community the highest quality of life safety and fire protection services. The department strives to meet the needs of the community through the committed efforts of its dedicated firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and administrative staff.

We are honored to serve the Johns Creek community and seek opportunities to work closely with residents and businesses in the City. Please read about our Super CPR Saturday classes, Risk Watch program for elementary school students, home and business smoke detector inspections and Citizens Fire Academy.

Each October, our "Community Safety Day" is a popular event we co-host with the JCPD for residents and business owners to learn more about fire safety.

Our community outreach also includes providing safety tips and guidelines for residents and businesses to follow in order to keep their families and property protected. We publish a Home Fire Safety Checklist and a Business Fire Safety Checklist for our residents and business owners to use in assuring the safety of their homes and facilities.

The Johns Creek community is always welcome to visit any of our three fire stations and our firefighters are available to visit your neighborhood or business to speak about fire safety.

Our department has a continuous focus on fire education and prevention, quality emergency medical care, technical rescue and hazardous materials emergency response – making the community safer each day. The JCFD maintains a high level of readiness through its professional development and training of our personnel.

We are here to serve.
