Forsyth County (NC)

Forsyth County Fire/Rescue Stations

Most of the departments are based in Forsyth County, with the exception of Forbush (based in Yadkin County), Gumtree (based just below the line in Davidson), and King (based in Stokes County). Some of the departments have first-due district in adjoining counties as well.

Station 9, Forsyth County ES Fire Division (formerly FCFD) is home to Fire Administration, Fire Prevention, Fire/Rescue Training Coordination, and Communications. FCES Fire Division also provides 24-hour paid personnel to Vienna Fire & Rescue (Stations 20 and 21) to support that department's efforts.

Communications is the 9-1-1 PSAP for all areas of Forsyth County outside the Winston-Salem city limits. They dispatch county fire departments & rescue squads, Kernersville Fire-Rescue, and Forsyth County EMS. Communications also handles patch requests from out-of-county EMS units to Forsyth Medical Center and WFU Baptist Medical Center emergency departments.

109 (County Fire/Rescue Support Unit), CFR-1 (Smith Reynolds Airport crash truck), and Air 9 (Breathing Air Support) run out of Station 9 - these units make up the Suppression Division. 109 responds on all structure fires, fire alarm activations, and extrications in areas of the county not covered by WSFD or KFRD.

Station 6 is the Forsyth County Emergency Services Technical Rescue Division. From 1938 until January 2010 (when WSRS merged with FCES), they were known as the Winston-Salem Rescue Squad. Station 6 is a resource agency for Forsyth County and beyond, with its members covering special event standbys and responding on rescue jobs above and beyond the capability of the local fire department or rescue squad. Station 6 is dispatched for heavy extrication, trench/confined space rescue, water rescue (top and dive), large animal rescue, and other varied technical rescue disciplines.
