Fire Prevention

Since its incorporation, the City of Cuyuna has taken great pride in maintaining a strong, well equipped, and progressive fire department to protect its citizens and properties. The members of the CFD recently spearheaded the drive for a new fire barn. While all members volunteer, each actively trains to respond to chemical, natural and fire disasters.

To report a fire or other emergency dial 911. Provide your name, address and type of emergency and the Crow Wing County dispatcher will immediately page the appropriate emergency response unit.

Since its incorporation, the City of Cuyuna has taken great pride in maintaining a strong, well equipped, and progressive fire department to protect its citizens and properties. The members of the CFD recently spearheaded the drive for a new fire barn. While all members volunteer, each actively trains to respond to chemical, natural and fire disasters. Most members have achieved Fire Fighter I training and several are certified as training instructors. The CFD provides coverage for Cuyuna as well as a portion of Rabbit Lake Township. As the department does maintain a high level of certification, property owners realize a very significant cost savings in their property insurance premiums. Also, mutual-aid agreements exist with Crosby, Ironton, Deerwood and the Department of Natural Resources to share fire-fighting resources. Established in 1910, the CFD recently celebrated its first centennial.
