FORSYTH COUNTY — The Forsyth County Fire Department graduated a new class of recruits during a ceremony Friday night at the Central Park Recreation Center.

The recruits — Jarred Andrews, John Crump, Justin Rogers, Luis Salazar and John Underwood III — decided to dub their class “The Watchmen,” and the name was carved, along with a Bible verse, on a large wooden pole.

The team completed several team-building exercises with the pole, including hiking up Sawnee Mountain.
