Welcome to the Cedarburg Fire Department
Chief Richard Van Dinter has recently retired
from active service with the Cedarburg Fire Department. Chief
Van Dinter served the department for 40 years, the last 21 as
chief. During his tenure, he has continued to move the
department forward. Some of his accomplishments include an
addition to fire station 1, and working with the Town of
Cedarburg to build a second station in the town. Chief Van
Dinter was the driving force to construct a memorial behind
station 1 entitled "Generations." This memorial is to recognize
members that have serviced, are serving, and the future
generation that will serve. The highlight of the memorial is a
bronze sculpture depicting one of the departments first chiefs,
a current member in full gear, and a small child holding a fire
hose spraying water into a pond. Chief Van Dinter will continue
to be active in fund raising at Fireman's Park, and will also
continue to serve on several committees. Jeff Vahsholtz, a 36
year member of the department has been appointed as the new
chief to lead the department. Jeff has served as Assistant Chief
under Chief Van Dinter for the last 20 years. Jeff feels that he
has been mentored by one of the best in the fire service.
