Ross Valley Fire News
Assemblymember Marc Levine and FIRESafe MARIN invite you to hear what state, county, and local governments are doing to prepare for wildfires and how we plan to improve fire safety in Marin. Learn how to prepare your family, home and property in case of disaster.
A focus of the Town Hall is to inform residents of the work that agencies and individuals have done to plan for a fire disaster and to let them know how wildfire disasters will be handled in Marin County.
FIRESafe MARIN will have panelists participating in the discussion, and a booth staffed by volunteers to provide wildfire safety information.

Ross Valley hillsides, while beautiful, are an ideal environment for a devastating wildland fire. With the onset of summer months comes the drying and curing of our lands. As temperatures peak, humidity drops and the summer winds blow, the potential for wildland fires increase. Despite the efforts of the fire services, many homes are lost each year due to wildland and wildland urban interface fires. It is imperative that you prepare now to protect your home from such occurrences.
To assist homeowners and residents with creating Defensible Space, Ross Valley Fire Department has added several useful videos to our Defensible Space page.
