The Forsyth County Fire Department has added two new vehicles — a 100-foot ladder truck and engine — to its fleet. In a statement, Fire Chief Danny Bowman called the equipment “important components of the department’s five-year plan.”“They are critical pieces of equipment that will, without question, assist our firefighters as they perform their daily fire suppression and emergency response missions,” he said. “They will also help boost departmental efficiency and enhance the safety of our personnel.”
