Barrow County Emergency Services is in the process of rebranding itself as the Barrow County Fire Department. The move was announced in a social media post Thursday. Department officials said the change was prompted by the privatization of EMS and the county's E-911 becoming a separate division. "We felt it was time for a more traditional look," Fire Chief Alan Shuman said in Thursday's release. Officials said stakeholders with the department have been meeting over the past two years, deciding on the new name and creating new logos and patches. With that work completed, the department is now moving into the implementation phase of the rebrand. "This process will not change the services or level of care currently provided by our fire personnel," Thursday's post said.
