Fire Suppression

Southern Marin Fire Protection District (SMFD) maintains a daily staffing level of 16 personnel. The District's suppression personnel are divided into three platoons, A, B, and C. Each platoon is commanded by a Battalion Chief who is responsible for 3 stations, Strawberry, Tamalpais Valley, and Sausalito. Personnel are deployed in 3 Engines, 1 Ladder Truck, and 1 Rescue Squad. These crews perform fire suppression operations, medical/rescue services, and other hazard mitigation activities, which allow SMFD personnel to carry out the primary mission of protecting the lives and property of our citizens.
