In 2012, the Johns Creek Fire Department joined forces with the Alpharetta Fire Department to form a North Fulton Hazardous Materials Response Task Force.
The Johns Creek and Alpharetta fire departments conduct joint training and response to mitigate any hazardous material-related emergencies. The JCFD has about 30 members trained as hazmat technicians.
Currently, the hazmat equipment is housed in Alpharetta and is transported to the emergency scene by the Alpharetta Fire Department. JCFD supplements the response with manpower.
