The Mission of the Mill Valley Fire Department is to continuously meet the needs of our community in the most effective and efficient means possible.
On behalf of everyone in the Mill Valley Fire Department, welcome to our website. Our staff of nearly 35, including sworn, volunteer and civilian personnel, is proud to provide services to the community of Mill Valley 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.
Our firefighters are highly skilled and trained "all-risk" emergency responders providing services to Mill Valley out of two fire stations. We provide public education, inspection services, plan checking, vegetation management and post-incident fire investigation through our fire prevention efforts.
Feel free to explore our website. We have tried to make it as comprehensive as possible, but if you can't find what you are looking for, please let us know. We are always eager to receive feedback and would love to hear your comments.
If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me directly. You can email email@example.com or call me at 415-389-4142.
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.
Mill Valley Fire Department was awarded $21,000 from the Assistance to Firefighter Grant to purchase two new thermal imaging cameras (TIC) to assistance in seeing through the smoke to locate people and animals.
A small half acre vegetation fire was reported around 2:34pm, Mill Valley Fire Department and neighboring agencies responded immediately and the fire was deemed contained by 2:52pm. No evacuations are in effect and no structures were threatened, though we do ask you to avoid the area as emergency crews finish up.
With the ongoing fires around the State, the City continues to focus on fire preparedness and prevention in our community, as described by City Manager Jim McCann at the Mill Valley City Council meeting on August 7, 2018.
