Emergency Management

Emergency Management seeks to promote safer, less vulnerable communities with the capacity to cope with hazards and disasters. The City of Cottage Grove works in collaboration with local, county, state, and federal officials and partners with neighboring jurisdictions to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to, and recover from threatened or actual natural disasters, acts of terrorism, or other man-made disasters.

The Department of Public Safety utilizes a comprehensive, flexible, all-hazards approach by coordinating and integrating all activities necessary to build, sustain, and improve the Emergency Management capabilities for the city.

Any questions regarding Emergency Management can be directed toward Police Captain Gwen Martin at 651-458-6011 or Fire Chief Rick Redenius at 651-458-2855 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday.
