Fire Season – Well underway!

The Mill Valley Fire Department and the Southern Marin Fire Protection District are actively assisting other communities throughout California, while still remaining vigilant on the home front with 100% of our stations staffed.  We currently have engines and staff committed to:

  • Santa Clara Lightning Complex
  • Woodward Fire – Marin Coast
  • Butte Lightning Complex

As we navigate an increase in number and duration of Red Flag Warnings, we have added equipment and staffing commensurate with the risks to protect our community first.  We have also prioritized helping our neighbors, because we understand that help will come back to our community when we are in need. 

Navigating a fire season means that we do it together.  Your fire department working hand in hand with neighborhoods to prepare for the worst-case scenario.  This link provides excellent information regarding evacuation from your home/neighborhood, locations of your community refuge areas and assistance with a communications plan.  Remember, if you move slower these days due to injury or advanced age, it is ok to pre evacuate until Red Flag (high fire danger) weather resolved. 

Preparing your home is also essential.   This link takes you to some basic information that you can start on today to improve your homes survivability. 

Our Fire Chief Tubbs says, “this fire season will be a marathon and not a sprint.”
