The Forsyth County Fire and Rescue Association Inc. was established in 1956 by the Volunteer Fire Departments of Forsyth County.
The purpose of the Association is to coordinate the efforts of all member organizations in order to establish, maintain and standardize county- wide fire protection programs, projects, procedures and training curriculums. The Association is governed by a chief council of member originations which meet every other month. Working sub-committees are established to carry out specific interests such as training, standard operating procedures or to coordinate events in support of the Association’s mission. The principal office is located at the Forsyth County Fire Department facility at Smith-Reynolds Airport in Winston- Salem. The Forsyth County Fire Department also provides administrative and staff support for the Association membership and programs.
The Forsyth County Fire and Rescue Association has a long and rich history in unifying the resources and efforts of all member organizations. The strength of all organizations working as an Association has provided the foundation for improving the proficiency of each department and enhancing the well being and safety of the emergency responders and thus the citizens of Forsyth County.
