Our most important series of features on the Marin Fire History site are the biographies of the people who served. The public often thinks of the fire service in terms of fire engines, red lights and sirens, and fire stations. We know better - the most important asset we have are the firefighters themselves.
Our ever growing list of fire service veterans is quite incomplete. You can help us by suggesting features, and contributing stories and images of those who served. Use the Contact Page under our main menu to start the process. We'd especially appreciate your help in contributing written features, as time is a limiting factor on the growth of this section.
Today we are featuring the story of Clarence Nunes, a second generation firefighter who served as a long-time Captain in the Marin County Fire Department. Clarence passed away in October of this year at the age of 80. Read the beginning of his story, and see some photos our his biography page. Please send any additional memories and/or images of Clarence to add care of firstname.lastname@example.org.
