Live Fire Training
02-17-2013 @ 1100 HRS
South Lane County Fire and Rescue firefighters performed a live fire training event at 676 North 11th Street Cottage Grove on February 17th, 2013. The home was donated by the Bernice Thoreson family, and was no longer being inhabited. This training allowed firefighters the chance to get first hand fire suppression experience in a safe and controlled environment. Live Fire experience is normally something thats only available to firefighters during an actual emergency. South Lane County Fire and Rescue has been given the chance to burn a few more houses later this spring in and around the Cottage Grove and Creswell areas.
South Lane County Fire and Rescue provides Fire and EMS protection to the communities of Cottage Grove, Creswell and 132 square miles of unincorporated Southern Lane County.
