Marn Firefighters Ventilate RoofOver the past three decades, firefighting has evolved from a common trade which was often performed by volunteers, into a highly demanding technical career. From Hazardous Materials, Emergency Medical Services, Paramedicine, Terrorism/WMD, Heavy Rescue, Water Rescue, and Urban Search and Rescue, our job today is far more complex and technical, requiring more (and more varied) education, training, and dedication to succeed. During this period of unprecedented change, Local 1775 and the IAFF grew to provide leadership and guidance in professionalism, training, labor relations, safety, and community issues.  Our members take pride in the community involvement and leadership that Marin firefighters provide locally, statewide, and nationally.


The spirit of charity and giving runs strong among Marin's firefighters, in a profession that attracts those who live to give back to their community.  Marin Professional Firefighters proudly supports these charitable organizations:


Our association represents a diverse group of skilled, highly educated men and women, with nearly 100% membership among uniformed, professional "career" firefighters from every fire department, district, and community in Marin:

Honoring Our Fallen

Firefighting is one of America's most dangerous professions. Many Marin Firefighters have died in the line of duty, and many succumb to illness related to on the job exposures to toxic chemicals and carcinogens in smoke and hazardous materials. Please help us recognize and remember the sacrifices of our fallen members.
