Once a firefighter has completed recruit school, they are released to the Operations Division to begin their career as a firefighter. This is the period when a probationary firefighter begins to learn about the job. During this period, a “probie” is constantly evaluated to determine if they have what it takes to be a Forsyth County firefighter. This probationary period lasts 18-months from the date of hire.
