Forsyth Fire Chief Sworn In to Georgia Board of Public Safety

Forsyth County Fire Chief Danny Bowman is officially on the Board of the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

Governor Nathan Deal recently swore in Forsyth County Fire Chief Danny Bowman to the Board of the Georgia Department of Public Safety.

The Governor’s office announced the appointment of Bowman by Governor Deal to serve on the board last November, a press release stated.

Bowman, who began his career as a firefighter for the Atlanta Fire Department in 1968, worked his way up the ranks. He eventually served 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 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.
