Representing the 400+ career firefighters of Marin County as they work to protect life and property.

Who We Are

For close to a century, firefighters in Marin County have been working together to find the most effective and efficient means of keeping our residents safe. Starting in 1929 with the formation of the Marin County Association of Fire Departments, firefighters throughout the region have been working together to deliver the best fire protection to our residents, visitors, and businesses. Today, our association represents more than 400 firefighters from 11 local and county government fire departments and districts. That includes nearly every firefighter from every district, county, and municipal fire department in Marin County. Our members take pride in the community involvement and leadership that Marin firefighters provide locally, statewide, and nationally.
