Partner in Education Spotlight: Forsyth County Fire Department

FC Fire Department The Forsyth County Fire Department is a true Partner in Education with all Forsyth County schools.  In addition to keeping our county and schools safe from fire daily, they have provided many employees with Stop the Bleed tourniquet kit training and kits.  These employees recently included all 450 FCS transportation staff.  The Forsyth County Fire Department trained all bus drivers on this important training from September 2018 to January 2019.  This training has already saved a student's life.  As Director of Transportation Mike Satterfield said,"The outstanding work of all of these folks has allowed us to take huge strides toward our our goal of keeping 100% of our students safe 100% of the time on FCS school buses, and has most likely made Forsyth County Schools the first district in the state—and possibly the country—to provide this life-saving equipment on the school bus."
