In 2004 the Town of Cedarburg decided to build a station that was more centrally located to shorten the response time to calls in the town. This idea was recommended by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission in the last 1980's for the Cedarburg area. The station was built on Covered Bridge Road just north of State Highway 60 and Five Corners. The land was donated by the Grob family and had previously been used as a farm field.

Cedarburg Fire Department Station 2 was built throughout the winter of 2004-2005. It was dedicated on June 1, 2005. The station has two apparatus bays and each bay can fit one and a half engines. There is a maintenance room and a washroom just off the engine room floor. The station also includes a communications room along with a meeting room and kitchenette.

The first apparatus housed at Station 2 are the venerable Engine 163 and Brush Unit 158. Engine 163 is a highly capable engine and has been the workhorse of the fire department through 2004. The other vehicle located at Station II is 158. It was designed specifically for the station, equipped to respond to brush fires, motor vehicle accidents and medical calls.

The station has been the center of many activities. It was the staging point for the fire department's special projects, committee meetings, and various trainings have been conducted there. The Cedarburg Fire Department shares the building with a municipal government and Station 2 will be used as a polling place on Election Day starting in 2009.

In 2012 the Ozaukee County Association of Fire Departments received a Mass Casualty Trailer. The trailer is being housed at Station 2.
