ATLANTA, GA — (June 22, 2021) Steve Broadbent, Senior Vice President, Retirement, at Fulcrum Partners, a OneDigital Company, saw his advocacy for increased public safety in Johns Creek, Georgia, come to fruition with the ribbon cutting of Fire Station 64. The new fire station is intended to significantly improve the fire department’s service delivery and response time in the northern and west central areas of Johns Creek, an Atlanta suburb.
Steve Broadbent has served the public both as Council Member and as Mayor Pro Tem of Johns Creek while concurrently serving his clients as part of senior leadership at Fulcrum Partners. Steve said, “As a City Council-member, I fought hard over a three-year period to get this new station approved and funded. Prior to the construction of this station, the city operated three fire stations and a response time goal of no more than six minutes was achieved throughout most of the city. Two areas on the west and north sides of the city were significant exceptions to this response time. In these areas, responses could reach 11 minutes.
“When you call 911 in a fire or medical emergency, the time until the first unit arrives can feel like an eternity. We could not risk 10- and 11-minute response times for our residents. Everyone expects and deserves the same level of service, regardless of where your home or business is located.”
Steve added, “While I was no longer serving on City Council during this year’s ribbon cutting for the new fire station, I was honored to participate in this important event.”
Steve Broadbent has a lifetime of dedicated public service. He currently serves on the State of Georgia Board of Community Affairs, is the Chairperson of the Johns Creek Public Safety Foundation, is Director of the Development Authority of Fulton County, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary for the U.S. Department of the Treasury, appointed by President George H. W. Bush, two-time recipient of the Navy’s Meritorious Service Medal, recipient of the Meritorious Service Award from the Secretary of the Treasury, and recipient of the Commissioner’s Award, which is the highest honor presented by the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service. He is a U.S. Navy retired Commander, serving at sea and in Washington, DC, and holds a Master of Arts in Public Policy from George Washington University, a Master of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina and a Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Virginia.
