Weekly Report from the Fire Chief


Welcome to the Novato Fire District (NFD) web page. Our website will provide you with information on the programs and services that we take pride in providing to the communities that we serve. We have an 90 year history of service dating back to our formation as a fire district in 1926.

Our strength as an organization is based on our members and their unwavering commitment to excellence. We take great pride in caring for, protecting, and serving our communities.

I am honored to serve as your Fire Chief. My career with the NFD began 28 years ago when I was hired and served as a Firefighter/Paramedic. Over the years I have held the rank of Firefighter/Paramedic, Relief Engineer, Captain, Battalion Chief, Division Chief, and Acting Fire Chief. I have enjoyed every day of service to our members and to our communities. I look forward to leading this wonderful organization in service for you.

We strive for excellence in all that we do. Please continue to visit our website, and join us on Facebook. Stay informed about the activities and programs that your Fire District has to offer you. Let me know how we are doing and how we can better serve you.

Thank you for visiting our website.
