Vegetation Management

NEW! 2020 SMFD Wildfire Hazard and Risk Assessment

In 2019, Southern Marin Fire Protection District’s Vegetation Management Program was established with the passing of Measure U. The Southern Marin Fire Protection District has worked to identify hazards relating to wildfire for the City of Sausalito and the communities of Tam. Valley, Homestead Valley, Strawberry, Almonte, and Tiburon. A budget of $1,000,000 was established for the overall progress. With the creation of Southern Marin Fire's Vegetation Management Program, numerous projects and programs were created to help and protect the citizens within the district:

  • Removal of encroaching vegetation along paved roads
  • Creation of fuel breaks/buffer zones
  • Creation of FireWise Communities
  • Removal of flammable vegetation on City/County owned properties
  • Neighborhood chipper projects of various sizes
  • Creation of public education material and distribution
  • Individual home assessments
  • Address placarding
  • Evacuation drills
  • Designated parking
