District Overview

Southern Marin Fire Protection District is an independent fire district as defined in the California Administrative Code. The District was created in 1999 by Marin County LAFCO with the consolidation of the Alto-Richardson Bay Fire Protection District and The Tamalpais Fire Protection District. In June of 2012, the City of Sausalito was annexed into the District by a vote of the citizens of Sausalito.

The area currently served by the District includes the City of Sausalito, Tamalpais Valley, Homestead Valley, Almonte, Alto Bowl, Strawberry, the western 1/4 of the Town of Tiburon (Bel Aire/Blackfield/Reed Heights) and the National Park areas of Fort Baker and the Marin Headlands.

The District is governed by a seven member board of directors who are elected by the residents on four year terms. The District operates out of three stations with a minimum staffing of 15 personnel on duty at all times. We respond to about 3,000 incidents per year.

The headquarters station in Strawberry serves as the administrative offices and houses an Engine, Paramedic Medium Rescue, Battalion Chief and a California RTF Swift Water Rescue Unit.

The Tamalpais Valley station houses a Type 1 (all risk) Engine, a Type 3 (Wildland) Engine, Ladder Truck and a Paramedic Ambulance.

The Sausalito station houses an Engine, a Paramedic Ambulance and the Marin County Hazardous Materials Team response unit. The crews there cross-staff the Fireboat, an Inflatable Rescue Boat, and are members of the Dive Team.

Since 1980, the District has been a member of the Southern Marin Emergency Medical Paramedic System Joint Powers agreement. Through this agreement, the District provides paramedic ambulance service to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Beach, Muir Woods National Monument, Throckmorton Ridge and lands in and around Mount Tamalpais State Park, as well as technical rescue services to all of the above areas and the City of Mill Valley and the Tiburon peninsula.
