Starting April 25th, the San Rafael Fire Department, in partnership with Marin County Fire and Marin County Parks, will be performing vegetation work in the Terra Linda neighborhood. The Marin County Fire Department Tamalpais Crew, will be performing fire hazardous vegetation removal within Marin County Park’s Terra Linda Preserve. The crew will be working behind homes along Cedar Hill Dr, Upper Oak Dr, Denning Ave, Lea Dr, Terra Linda Dr, Montecillo Dr, and Manuel T Freitas Pkwy.
The City of San Rafael is part of the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA). In 2020, Marin County voters passed special tax Measure C, which established a Joint Powers Authority, the MWPA, to fund and oversee proactive state-of-the-art wildfire prevention and preparedness efforts within the County. The purpose of the project is to reduce excessive fuels and fire hazardous vegetation within 150 feet of homes. The project will also improve access by local fire departments in the event of an emergency. The hazardous fuels to be removed will either be chipped and hauled away or piled and burned this winter by a qualified crew.
