"If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that does not know it is part of a tree." - Michael Crichton
This week we are starting our biography section, which is in addition to the section featuring recipients of special recognition and major awards. This is one of our most important efforts - preserving the stories of who we were and the connections to who we are today. We hope that many people will help in this effort - if you are interested in researching and writing a biography on someone who was in the Marin County Fire Service, please let us know. This week we'll start with the story of Tony Bacon of Novato FPD - his life and career and what he did with the National Park Service after retiring.
Please note that all of our biographies are meant to be 'living and evolving'. This means that we hope that the first version grows and improves over time, as new information and images are found. Help us, for example, grow Tony's story.
Our Blog announces new site content, and gives the context of the topic and it's relationship to fire service history. Written by Bill Lellis & Paul Smith
