Fire & EMS

We hope you never have to deal with a house fire, and we don't have many in the City of Cottage Grove on an annual basis. But the Cottage Grove Fire Department wants to make sure the City can assist you quickly in the event of an unlikely and unfortunate house fire. Below you'll find a link to a guide we've put together to help families in their time of need.
