For any fire department, it is in the arena of Operations that the “rubber meets the road”. The Marin County Fire Department operationally serves the public in many fashions ranging from traditional Fire Suppression and Emergency Medical Services to Special Operations and the Tamalpais Fire Crew…and everything in between. Being prepared for anything that the public may ask of us is so important to the Marin County Fire Department that “Operational Readiness” is one of our core values.
