Forsyth Fire Chief Joins Safety Board

Fire Chief Danny Bowman says his "humbled" by appointment.

Forsyth County Fire Chief Danny Bowman was recently named to the Board of the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

"I am deeply honored and humbled that the governor trusts me with this appointment,” said Bowman. “I promise the citizens of Forsyth County that I will represent them well as a member of the Georgia Board of Public Safety."

The mission of the Georgia Department of Public Safety is to work cooperatively with all levels of government to provide a safe environment for residents and visitors to the state.

Although focused primarily on the enforcement of traffic laws and investigation of traffic crashes, the Department of Public Safety supports the efforts of all public safety agencies to reduce crime, apprehend those who commit them, and respond to natural and manmade disasters.

“Chief Bowman does an outstanding job of leading the Forsyth County Fire Department,” said County Manager Doug Derrer. “His service on the Georgia Board of Public Safety will no doubt be a tremendous asset to public safety matters statewide. We are certainly proud of his appointment.”

Bowman began his career as a firefighter for the Atlanta Fire Department in 1968, and worked his way up the ranks, eventually serving in the chief administrator capacity for the newly formed Fulton County Fire Department and later as deputy fire chief, interim fire chief and battalion chief for Fulton County.

He joined the Forsyth County Fire Department as division fire chief in 2001 and was promoted to assistant fire chief and EMA director in 2002. He has served as chief of department since July 2003.

Bowman is active in the community and in the fire services industry. In 2010, the Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs named Bowman the Georgia Fire Chief of the Year.

The office of Governor Nathan Deal announced the appointment of Chief Bowman on Nov. 2.
