About the Department

The Crew

MBVFD Wildland Fire TrainingMuir Beach firefighters are a diverse group of volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds and vocations. They embody the essence of what makes Muir Beach great; the spirit of community, the willingness to step up and volunteer, and the desire to help others with no expectation for reward other than knowing that their actions make a difference.

Training closely with Marin County Firefighters at the Throckmorton station, Muir Beach Firefighters are required, at a minimum, to hold and maintain an E.M.R (Emergency Medical Responder) and State Volunteer Firefighter certificate.

Included within this dedicated group of volunteers are one professional Firefighter, three E.M.T.s (Emergency Medical Technician) and one M.D.

The result is a highly skilled group of unpaid experts who respond to a full range of emergency situations, including:

In addition to the tremendous amount of time and effort each volunteer gives towards training and providing emergency services 24/7, the Muir Beach Volunteer Fire Department also provides various community services and educational programs to the residents of Muir Beach such as:
