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.

What is Marin County’s Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS) used for?

  • The emergency notification system’s primary purpose is to advise you of any situation occurring or about to occur that threatens harm to life and/or property or is deemed dangerous by officials. This may include, but is certainly not limited to, extreme weather, natural or man-made disasters, crime, pandemics, hazardous materials incidents, and missing persons.

What, if any, of my contact information do you already have in the current telephone emergency notification system for me?

  • The Marin County’s Telephone Emergency Notification System uses listed and unlisted/blocked landline numbers provided by AT&T and Verizon.

Why am I being asked to use the Self Registration Portal?
