Open space areas reopened due to low fire danger

Posted on December 8, 2018


Due to extreme fire danger, all open space areas in the City of San Rafael were closed on November 16, 2018. On Friday, December 7, 2018, the open space areas were reopened due to low fire danger.

Regardless, fire danger in open space remains a real threat, and you can help the San Rafael Fire Department and Police Department to help protect our community and preserve open space from potential fires.

How to Report Open Space Fire Hazards

  • Emergency – Call 9-1-1.
  • Urgent, but not non-emergency – Call (415) 485-3000 (this line is answered 24/7)
  • Not urgent – use the online reporting form

Tips for Reporting:

Include Latitude and Longitude – Use your smart phone to record the latitude and longitude so we can find it easily. A screen shot from a smart phone compass app can help us locate exactly where you were.
