FORSYTH COUNTY — The Forsyth County Fire Department added three new engines to its fleet this week, completing a changeover that officials said has been 10 years in the making. The additional vehicles mean that all of the department’s manned stations are now equipped with custom designed Pierce Arrow XT pumpers. While many county services are provided by the lowest bidder, Division Chief Jason Shivers said the fire department decided to go with one manufacturer.
