Watch Part 2 of "How To Prepare Before, During, & After A Wildfire Evacuation" Video Series


The vegetation fire in Mill Valley on Monday, May 31st is a reminder to all residents to be prepared when wildfires threaten our community. Residents should know what to do in case of emergency. All month long Southern Marin Fire District will be sharing videos educating residents on steps to prepare, in advance, for evacuation from wildfires and other disasters.  

In an emergency, Marin officials may use many different tools to communicate information and instructions to the community; Alert Marin, Nixle, local TV and radio, and Social Media (Facebook and Twitter) are the primary outlets. Register now and prepare to use these systems before an emergency occurs.
