Marin Wildfire Forum

County logo

Join us May 4, 2019 for a FREE forum, presentation and panel discussion on wildfire preparedness, and an introduction to important new efforts that will help make Marin more wildfire resilient. We’ll have tables and booths representing a variety of stakeholders, contractors, and agency representatives of industries who play a role in Marin’s wildfire readiness.

What: Opening with a special guest presentation from a Camp Fire evacuation survivor, the Marin Wildfire Forum will look at prevention and preparedness through a countywide lens. Representatives from local government, fire agencies, land managers, emergency services, law enforcement, community leaders and wildfire experts will update residents on progress to date, work to come, and future needs. Residents will learn what they can do to protect their homes and what we can do together to make Marin as wildfire safe and emergency ready as possible.

Why: Wildfire prevention and emergency preparedness are countywide priorities. Great work is being done in communities across Marin, but there is much more to do. Fire knows no boundaries. We must work together as one community to make all of Marin as wildfire safe and emergency ready as possible.

When: Saturday, May 4 from 10 AM to noon.
Where: Embassy Suites, San Rafael
Event Hosts/Sponsors:   FIRESafe MARIN, County of Marin, Firewise USA, Marin County Fire Chiefs Association.
