About B.A.D.G.E.

The mission of B.A.D.G.E. is to give back to employees of the Forsyth County Service Organizations that serve and protect us. To restore confidence, hope and peace of mind through financial and other support when unforeseen or unwelcome circumstances enter their lives.

Forsyth County Sheriff, Ron Freeman
On behalf of the proud men and women of the Forsyth County Fire Department, I am honored to express my sincerest thanks for B.A.D.G.E. This amazing program, completely funded through private donations from local citizens and business leaders, provides for crucial financial support to our firefighters in times of their need. Whether it be an injury, family crisis, unforeseen financial burden, or any other number of needs, my firefighters know that they have a locally funded, and locally managed, program that looks out for them - just as they look out for Forsyth County.

Organizations like B.A.D.G.E. are one of the many reasons that Forsyth County is an amazing place to live and work. The B.A.D.G.E. program is like and extended family member for us and one for which I am so personally grateful.

Thank you to the citizens of Forsyth County who both, created B.A.D.G.E., and those that support it, because they see the need to support all of our public safety employees, within the county. Forsyth County has some of the most professional emergency management and emergency telecommunications staff in the entire state, and to know that they have a local organization looking out for them during their times of need is very comforting, not only to them, but also to their families.

Not only has BADGE committed to helping our Public Safety families during a critical time of need, they have also committed to providing scholarships to employees and their children to ensure that they can continue their education, by raising funds from local businesses and citizens who care for their hometown heroes. On behalf of the men and women of Forsyth County's Emergency Management Agency, thank you B.A.D.G.E., for your care and support.
