Cottage Grove Emergency Medical Services (EMS) provides pre-hospital emergency medical care to the citizens of Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park and Grey Cloud Island since the early 1970s.

Cottage Grove is also unique in that we provide emergency medical services (E.M.S. - Paramedic Ambulance Service), utilizing fire fighter paramedics and police officer paramedics in a joint service.  Currently Cottage Grove public safety is transitioning to fire fighter paramedics responding to first call medicals and police officer paramedics respond to secondary calls. 

Under this model, Cottage Grove EMS has some of the quickest response times in the metropolitan area and above average cardiac arrest save rates.
