It is always important to understand the larger context when reviewing fire service history - what was happening in not only the larger fire service, but in our nation, state, society, and in our local communities?
In a few days we'll upload the first part of a written history of the Sausalito FD, one of our fire departments that "no longer exists" as an organization. As of 2012, the fire protection is formally provided through the Southern Marin Fire Protection District. Sausalito FD was one of the oldest in Marin, with roots dating back to the aftermath of a large fire on July 4, 1893.
Look forward to the start of a detailed review, along with some great photographs. This was collected and prepared by retired Sausalito FD Operations Chief Fred Bunker, with help from many, all of whom will be thanked in the credits.
