Thank you for visiting the Cottonwood Fire and Medical Department website. We hope you find our site to be informative and useful.

The Cottonwood Fire and Medical Department is proud to serve you, the citizens of our community and our neighboring communities, when you need us. Our motto is “We’re here to help."

The Cottonwood Fire Department Operations Division is staffed with highly trained professional firefighters, paramedics and special operations personnel who provide full service fire, emergency medical, hazardous situation and disaster mitigation response. We provide these services by utilizing “state of the art” firefighting and emergency medical treatment technologies. This, along with our personnel continually maintaining and upgrading their training and certifications, helps ensure that we provide emergency response service to our community, that I believe is “second to none”.

Our Fire Prevention Division professionals are experts committed to reducing the risk of life and/or fire loss in our community. This is accomplished through active involvement in fire and life safety education in our schools and throughout our community, code review of building projects, business and residential inspections, fire investigation and fire code enforcement.

The fire service is steeped in a tradition of service and we at the Cottonwood Fire and Medical Department continually seek to excel in providing the most proactive, efficient and professional service to our community. Please let us know how we can better serve you.

We sincerely appreciate your support. Remember, if you or your loved ones experience a fire or life safety emergency, we will be there when you need us.

Yours in service,
Chief Mike Kuykendall
