Fire Services

The Township fire protection services are allocated to three area fire departments. The Township has established service contracts with the City of Stoughton, Village of Cottage Grove, and Village of McFarland, to provide services to the Town of Pleasant Springs.

Each of these agencies provides full-time, part-time and volunteer staffing with state certified fire officers, firefighters, and equipment engineers.

IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE

In the event of a fire, always call 9-1-1 first and foremost. The Dane County 9-1-1 center will dispatch the nearest and most readily available fire department to your emergency.


Each of these three fire departments conduct annual inspections of commercial properties within their respective service areas.
