The Cedarburg Fire Department is a community volunteer department made up of your neighbors, your friends and your relatives. We are committed to providing emergency services and fund raising activities to make the Cedarburg Fire Department the best of the best. It is only with your support by volunteering, that we can continue to provide first class service to our community. Not only is there a role for those that wish to fight fires and take care of the sick and injured, but there is another important role of fund raising that helps our community. It is through these fund raising efforts that allows the fire department to purchase our equipment and donate it back to Cedarburg. Just recently, we purchased a new fire engine at a cost of over $750,000.00 that will be donated back to the city. No tax dollars were spent, just the sweat and hard work of those who volunteer at our fund raising events to give back to the community. The Cedarburg Fire Department is a family and there is room for everyone in our family. Please consider joining today.

COVID-19 Update

Jeffrey J. Vahsholtz – Chief

The phrase “uncertain times” is used a lot in the media. But one thing is certain, the Cedarburg Fire Department is here to serve you, even in these “uncertain times.” We may be dressed differently than in the past, so please do not take offence when we walk in wearing glasses, a gown, mask and gloves. This is not only to protect our volunteers, but to protect you. We may ask you to wear a mask to the hospital, but again this is to protect you, the members of our department and the hospital staff.

We have also asked that no open burning takes place until this Pandemic comes to an end. You may ask, what does burning have to do with the Pandemic. Our members continue to practice Social Distancing even at the station. Putting 3 or 4 members in a confined space in the back of a fire truck puts our members at risk. Open burning does and has led to grass fires. These fires are avoidable and in turn will help to keep the members of our department safe during this Pandemic.

Quoting another social media phrase “we will get through this together”. The Cedarburg Fire Department will continue to be here to respond to any emergency you may have. Stay Safe!

Salute to Elroy

On Sunday, April 26th, 2020, the Cedarburg Fire Department sent all of our equipment on a special assignment. The assignment was to brighten the spirits of one of our members who had been on the department for over 50 years, Elroy. Elroy had been battling cancer for a couple of years. A few days later he would pass away.
