Mill Valley Fire Department: City Hall
26 Corte Madera Ave, Mill Valley, CA 94941

First organized in 1890 as a volunteer force, the Mill Valley Fire Department has come a long way from its daysMore of beating fires out with wet potato sacks and an old 1924 American La France. Firefighters are specialized in a wide range of skills in addition to firefighting and emergency medicine, including fire investigations, high-angle cliff rescue, Neighborhood Emergency Response Teams, CPR and first aid instruction.

Mill Valley's heavily wooded canyons and the steep terrain of the community have the department on constant alert for the threat of a major wildfire. The department's two stations are manned with seven fire fighters on duty and 24 line personnel, using four pieces of equipment on a shift: Two engines with 500 gallons of water each, one wildland fire engine and one command truck.
