On behalf of everyone in the Mill Valley Fire Department & Southern Marin Fire District, welcome to our website. In January 2020 the City of Mill Valley and the Southern Marin Fire District entered into a shared services agreement that leverages existing staff from both agencies to create a new, single management team for both agencies.
The Mill Valley Fire Department staff of approximately 28, and Southern Marin Fire District staff of approximately 57, including sworn, volunteer and civilian personnel, are proud to provide services to the community of Mill Valley and Southern Marin Fire District areas in a caring and professional manner.
Our mission is to continuously meet the needs of our community in the most effective and efficient means possible. Our people do that daily through prevention, education and emergency response. The Mill Valley Fire Department has a rich history and has proudly served the community for over 100 years, and the new partnership with the Southern Marin Fire District builds on this rich history and service, bringing the best of each agency together to serve the larger community.
Mill Valley & Southern Marin firefighters are highly skilled and trained "all-risk" emergency responders providing services to Mill Valley out of two fire stations, and the Southern Marin Fire District out of three fire stations. Collectively we provide public education, inspection services, plan checking, vegetation management and post-incident fire investigation through our fire prevention efforts.
Use 911 for life threatening emergencies only. Our emergency warning system is tested on the first Saturday of each month at noon. If you hear the siren at any other time, tune in to KCBS 740 AM and KGO 810AM and local tv stations for further information.
From Thursday, May 28 through Saturday, May 30, Southern Marin Fire District and Mill Valley Fire Department will be testing the LRAD emergency sirens located throughout Mill Valley. Please do not call 911 when you hear sirens on these test dates.
