FCFD annual report garners 2 national awards

By Staff
CUMMING - The Forsyth County Fire Department's (FCFD) 2010 Annual Report
has received national accolades.

The publication recently garnered two awards in the National Association of County Information Officers (NACIO) 2012 Awards of Excellence Competition.
The publication received a 'Superior' award in the competition's annual reports category.

Then, from amongst all of the award winners in the annual reports category, the Forsyth County Fire Department publication was named 'Best in Class.'

The Fire Department Annual Report is an informational tool, providing key information about the department, as well as annual news such as events and accomplishments. The publication is prepared jointly by the Fire Department and the Department of Communications. The Fire Department began publishing the annual report in 2005.

"First and foremost, this report is published with our citizens in mind, so as to better acquaint them with their Fire Department and the many important services we provide," Fire Chief Danny Bowman said. "We are certainly proud that it has been recognized with these awards."

The award-winning 2010 report as well as the department's more recently released 2011 report can be viewed online from the Fire Department page at www.forsythco.com.

Printed copies of the 2011 report are available at the Forsyth County Public Safety Complex, staffed fire stations and the County Administration Building.
NACIO is an affiliate of the National Association of Counties (NACo).
