 The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled the ninth National Prescription Drug Take-back Day that will take place on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 10 am to 2 pm.  The Mill Valley Police Department is proud to be partnering again with DEA for this event and will hold the collection event in the police station parking lot at 1 Hamilton Drive (across from Hauke Park).

In the eight previous Take-back events, DEA in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, have collected more than 2 million pounds of prescription medications and removed them from circulation.  The National Take-back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposal, while also educating the general public about the potential abuse of these medications.

The Mill Valley Police Department has a collection container in the station lobby for the disposal of unwanted, unused, and expired prescription and over-the-counter drugs.  The container can be accessed Monday -  Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.  Drug disposal addresses a vital public safety and health issue in that medicines that languish in your home are often susceptible to theft and abuse.

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.
