Who We Are

Marin Professional Firefighters is an association representing the career firefighters of Marin County, California.  Our membership consists of more than 400 firefighters from 11 local and county government fire departments and district.  Established June 1, 1968 with only 18 members, we now represent nearly every firefighter from every fire district, county, and municipal fire department in Marin.  As an affiliate of the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) is Local 1775.

Marn Firefighters Ventilate Roof

Over 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.


Charity & Compassion

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:

Solidarity & Diversity

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:
