We hit our Annual Fund Goal!!

Thanks to everyone who donated! Station modifications for the new engine are now complete!

We just purchased a new Engine!
The engine was purchased from the Tiburon Fire District. It is designed for structure fires and is very well outfitted. It has a short wheelbase and is excellent for driving on our winding and steep roads.

County Fire Services Ad-Hoc Committee
The Ad-hoc County Committee on Fire Services has morphed into the Fire Services Advisory Council. This body will make recommendations to the board of supervisors on the future of fire services in Sonoma County.  We are still not sure how any of this will affect MVFD, but we are watching it closely. Their website is here.

Current Information on Active Fires 
For information on any fires burning in the area, check out the Cal Fire Site, Their current incident page can be found here.

BAAQMD Burning Notification Fees
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District charges a fee as part of the burning notification process. The fee for hazard reduction fire notifications has increased to  $129 as of July 1, 2017.
