Established in 1946, the Nicasio Volunteer Fire Department (NVFD) is the only all-volunteer fire department in Marin County.  The NVFD supports the Marin County Fire Department on emergency calls within the Nicasio response area and, because most of our ten members live in the community, we are often first on-scene to help those in need. Our diverse membership includes long time residents as well as newer transplants, men and women, hi-tech professionals and professional firefighters, young and, well… less young.   In addition to our training for medical and fire related emergency response what unites us is our shared commitment to serving the Nicasio community and to helping those in need.  If you might be interested in becoming a volunteer, or wish to learn more about the NVFD, you may visit its independent website.
