DON'T CALL 911...when you hear sirens.
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.
On June 14, 2018, the Mill Valley Fire Department conducted a demonstration of a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) at the Public Safety Building with all of the Marin County Fire Chiefs in attendance. This test is in furtherance of the Fire Department’s initiative to improve the City’s readiness and responsiveness to a significant fire event, such as the wildfires experienced in Napa and Sonoma in 2017.
The City of Mill Valley is looking to replace our emergency sirens. There will be a demonstration on Thursday, June 14th at 10:30 a.m. in the area of the Public Safety Building (PSB), 1 Hamilton Drive, Mill Valley. You will hear a high pitched noise and an audible announcement.
