Chief's Message

Welcome to the Cedarburg Fire Department website.

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.

Thank you for visiting our website.
