Winter Storm


Career and volunteer personnel from South Lane County Fire & Rescue responded to eighty-seven winter storm related emergencies during a seventy-two hour period this past weekend. The fire district normally averages nine emergency responses a day. The majority of the calls were attributed to non-injury motor vehicle accidents and downed power lines.

The Fire District also responded to calls where trees had fallen onto structures. All calls for service were attended to quickly with minimal delays and no emergencies went without attention. There were no serious injuries to the public or fire district personnel during the storm. Fire District crews were assisted by Cottage Grove Police and local utility companies throughout the weekend.   

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.
