SMFD Issues

Everywhere we look right now, it is clear that fires pose a real and present danger to California. The Southern Marin Fire Protection District is a critical Marin County agency dedicated to protecting our residents’ safety through emergency preparedness, fire prevention and fire protection. 

As a Director, I work with my colleagues, the Fire Chief, the firefighters and staff to ensure we have a high performing, fiscally prudent district that prioritizes our residents safety through emergency preparedness, fire prevention and fire protection. 

  • Fire Preparedness and Protection

    Our Fire District must continue to protect the residents we serve by ensuring we have highly trained firefighting staff whom are well equipped and prepared to respond to all emergencies. We must continue to improve our ability to react to and contain wildland fires, maintain our local fire protection efforts and emergency medical services as well as our 9-1-1 response times.

    A career as a firefighter is a rewarding one that many in our community would enjoy. I am working with our labor unions, management and my fellow directors to find ways to improve the recruitment, training and hiring of more women and people of color.
  • Fiscal Responsibility

    I am committed to running an efficient agency that makes the highest use of our taxpayer resources. All our work must be fundable though a budget that prioritizes the safety of the residents and ensures high quality services for all.
