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), Colfax (based in Guilford County) 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), 209 (Support Unit), 309 (Support Unit), CFR-1 (Smith Reynolds Airport crash truck), and Air 9 units make up the Suppression Division. 109/209 responds on all structure fires, fire alarm activations, and extrications in areas of the county not covered by WSFD. 109 is based out of Kernersville Station 41 while 209 is based at Vienna Station 20.
Station 6 was known as the Forsyth County Emergency Services Technical Rescue Division until 2012-2013. From 1938 until January 2010 (when WSRS merged with FCES), they were known as the Winston-Salem Rescue Squad. Most of station 6's trucks/equipment are now serving with other county stations or WSFD.

Forsyth County EMS
The EMS Division of Forsyth County Emergency Services is 24-hr paramedic-level service operating from multiple locations across Forsyth County. FCEMS is a 9-1-1-only service and does NOT handle convalescent transports. Those types of transport are handled by two private EMS providers (NuCare Carolina Ambulance, Inc., and LifeStar Emergency Services). The private providers respond to BLS 9-1-1 calls as requested by Communications (a/k/a "Control").
When a call requires both fire and EMS response, units are switched to "Med TAC 1" (TG 33904) so to be able to communicate with responding fire units.
