|Title||Oral History of Greg Moore|
|Scope & Content||
Greg Moore retired in 2011 as Mill Valley Fire Chief after 37 years in the Fire Department. Greg moved to Mill Valley from San Francisco at a young age and attended Tamalpais Valley Elementary School, Edna Maguire, and then Tamalpais High School, where he explored his love of automobile mechanics and racing. After high school, Greg got a job working at Marin Auto Body in Mill Valley and married his high school sweetheart, Kathy Reynolds. While working at the auto shop and a couple other odd jobs around Mill Valley, Greg became involved with the volunteer firefighters. His experience fighting fires in Mill Valley as a volunteer inspired him to take on firefighting as a career.
In this oral history, Greg uses his time with the Mill Valley Fire Department to provide his perspective on how the Fire Department has changed over the years. Midway through
his career, a new and developing mutual aid system in California allowed Greg to participate in fighting large fires in Southern California. Greg also talks about the many projects he participated in to improve safety in Mill Valley as well as his passion for maintaining the town’s steps, lanes and paths.
