Marin County Fire Department Changeable Message Signs



This project will install electronic message signs at various fire station locations across Marin County.  The message signs will provide real-time information to the community in the event of an emergency, inform drivers of local traffic conditions, and provide other valuable information of general interest to the public.  The first phase of the project will see signs installed at the Tomales and Hicks Valley Stations, and planning completed for up to an additional three stations.


The budget for this project phase is $300,000, funded by the Fire/Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority Fund.
