On behalf of the Southern Marin Fire Protection District Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Tubbs as our new Deputy Chief. He will begin on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. Chief Tubbs comes to us from Mercer Island Fire in Washington State. He has been Chief of Mercer Island Fire Department for the Last six and a half years.
Chief Tubbs was selected after a comprehensive search process with many excellent candidates. The Board believes that he will be an excellent fit with the vision and culture of Southern Marin Fire.
Chief Tubbs was raised on Mercer Island. He began working for the Fire Department in 1978 while still a senior at Mercer Island High School, eventually being hired as a fulltime firefighter in 1982. He is highly-respected among peers for his level-headed guidance, and his knowledge and eagerness to experiment with improvements to operations, always with an eye on providing exceptional public service.
He is looking forward relocating to the Bay Area to be closer to Family and to meeting and working with the men and women of Southern Marin.
