Christmas Tree Hill Evacuation Route Clearance 2019

Central Marin Fire Department, along with FIRESafe MARIN and other Marin fire agencies, secured a $1 Million grant for clearance of vegetation along evacuation route roadways.  The Town of Corte Madera has partnered to provide match funding for the initial clearing of vegetation located along the roadway fronting properties on Christmas Tree Hill in summer 2019.

During the months of June and July, 2019 for a period of 4-6 weeks, personnel from the Town and the Fire Department will be working with private contractors to begin the clearing of vegetation along the roadways.
