The new Forsyth County Fire Station 3 debuted Thursday with a ceremony reflecting on the sense of community and history in the area. Fire Chief Danny Bowman nodded to both the volunteers, who built the first Station 3 just down the road in 1973, and the Wallis Tatum family who sold the land to the county for the new one. “To the Matt community, I assure you as your fire chief, this is not our fire station,” Bowman said.
