Two Cottage Grove Firefighters Receive Meritorious Service Awards

Cottage Grove, Minn. – May 18, 2017 – Matt Dahlquist and Dave Quebodeaux, who work as firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) for the City, were presented with Meritorious Service Awards at the May 17 City Council meeting.

Dahlquist was commended for his knowledge and assistance in purchasing new ambulances, and his work to outfit our ambulances with new staircases and new stretchers with cot loading and fastening systems.

Quebodeaux was honored for his teamwork and independent efforts to transfer primary fire and emergency medical services operations to the site of the old City Hall.

Meritorious Service Awards are given to members of the Department of Public Safety in recognition of work that surpasses normal assignments to make the city’s fire, police, or Emergency Medical Services more effective and efficient.
