Kentfield Fire Protection District

Register to Receive Evacuation Notices and Fire Information

During wildfires, Marin residents should be prepared to monitor multiple sources for fire and life safety information. Emergency managers will use several methods to distribute fire information: Alert Marin, Nixle, Social Media, local TV and radio, and social media (Facebook and Twitter) are the primary outlets. Don't neglect to use your own senses - look, listen, and smell for signs of fire and changing conditions!

Alert Marin

When Do We Use It?

  • When action is needed at a specific address
  • Imminent flooding, wildfires, and evacuations with life safety implications
  • During-event information about evacuation routes, shelters, transportation
  • Other public safety incidents where lives may be at risk

Important! Alert Marin is used when action must be taken at a specific address. Alert Marin is not a general public information source. Alert Marin will not be used to provide routine updates or fire information!


When Do We Use It?

  • When information is needed in a zip code
  • Road closures, general updates, issues affecting larger areas
  • Post-disaster information about shelters, transportation, or supplies
  • Police activity and general public safety information

It is important to understand that Alert Marin and Nixle are different, complementary systems, and currently require separate registrations. Nixle is an opt-in text message service used to announce local information, targeting zip codes. You are likely to receive frequent, low-level, non-emergency texts from many local public safety agencies by Nixle. Nixle may be used to provide general fire information or rebroadcast evacuation alerts, but Alert Marin is a separate and distinct system targeting specific street addresses with the ability to send voice, text, or email ACTION messages.

FIRESafe MARIN recommends that everyone register for Alert Marin and Nixle, and understand the difference!
