    Residents are advised to exercise extreme caution during the Red Flag Warning because a simple spark could cause a major wildfire, including the use of equipment and machinery as well as smoking. Please report potential new fires to 911.

    The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the North Bay Mountains and other parts of the Bay Area, which is in effect from Thurs. Oct. 1, 1 pm to Fri. Oct. 2, 6 pm. A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected during this time frame for strong wind gusts and hot, dry conditions. The affected area includes higher terrain areas of Marin, Napa, Sonoma, and East Bay counties. 

    The concerns of this weather system are that fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Erratic gusty outflow winds may result in dangerous and unpredictable fire behavior.  California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and CAL FIRE have approved the strategic prepositioning and increased staffing of critical fire resources. 

    The following land-use restrictions are in effect for the Marin Municipal Water District, Mount Tamalpais State Park, Marin Open Space, and The Point Reyes National Seashore during the Red Flag conditions.
    •    Closures at Sky Oaks, Natalie Coffin Green Park (Ross), Leo Cronin Parking Lot, MMWD, and San Rafael Open Space
    •    Mount Vision Rd, Inverness  (National Park Service)
    •    Closure to Fairfax Bolinas Road
    •    All open burning and burn permits are suspended on public lands
    •    Closures to Mount Tamalpais State Park - Roads north of Panoramic Highway are closed to motor vehicle traffic on Pantoll Road and Ridgecrest Boulevard.  All park use permits north of Panoramic Highway are suspended, including filming. 

    The Mount Tamalpais State Park information number is 415-388-2070.
    The Marin Municipal Water District information number is 415-945-1195.
    The Marin County Fire Information Hotline number is 415-473-7191.

    Defensible space is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire.

    Point Reyes Station free chipper event run by FIRESafeMarin & funded by the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA) is set for Wednesday, Nov. 11. All PRS residents can register their pile at: www.chipperday.com  or call and register at 415 570-4376. When you call, leave your name, phone number & address so crews can be sure to pick your pile. There is no pile size limit!  This is special for PRS (the website says there's a limit but not for this event in PRS). More information on the attached flyer. Sooner you register, you'll be included before a waiting list. ... Please note if you join with a neighbor for one pile, you should register both addresses & explain which address will have the pile out front.  Also, if you have a road behind the house where it will be, ie, not out front, please explain, as crews will be looking for addresses. This really is "curbside;" crews can't walk across yards to reach the pile. Last, please do call the phone number with such additional information and any questions.  ~posted by Lynn, pointreyesdisastercouncil.org

    Reposting: AlertMarin & Nixle have different ways of reaching you & supplement each other. Register for both. Please continue reading the following explanation. AlertMarin relies on a “geocode," ie, a digital locater, that makes phone calls that may go wider than necessary (simplified explanation). Nixle can send a map and readable information to your computer or Iphone (email or text, depending on which device you use). Thus the overly wide alertmarin evacuation warning phone call during the height of the Woodward Fire was clarified via a nixle simple map and accompanying description. So everyone should be signed up for both alertmarin and nixle. And, yes, some people report some problems with one or the other, so it's essential to sign up for both. If you are not a computer user, keep KWMR tuned in (90.5 PRS, 89.9 Bolinas, 92.3 SGV) 

    AlertMarin: Listed and unlisted/blocked Marin County landline phone numbers are already included in the emergency notification system. Cell phone and VoIP numbers are not included and will require your registration in our Self-Registration Portal. https://www.marinsheriff.org/services/emergency-services/alert-marin(link is external)

    Nixle: https://local.nixle.com/register/(link is external)

    When do we [Sheriff's Office] use Alert Marin?

    When ACTION is needed at a SPECIFIC ADDRESS or NEIGHBORHOOD
    Imminent flooding, wildfires, and evacuations with life safety implications
    During-event information about evacuation routes, shelters, transportation
    Other public safety incidents where lives may be at risk

    When do we {Sheriff's Office] use Nixle?

    When INFORMATION is needed in a ZIP CODE
    Road closures, general updates, issues affecting larger areas
    Post-disaster information about shelters, transportation, or supplies
    Police activity and general public safety information
