Muir 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 E.M.T.s (Emergency Medical Technician) and a Physician. The result is a highly skilled group of unpaid experts who respond to a full range of emergency situations, including:

  • Structure, vehicle and wildland fires
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Medical emergencies
  • Beach and trail rescue
  • Managing helicopter landing zones
  • Flood rescue
  • Landslides
  • Downed trees and power lines
