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.

Donated Gear to Hearts in Motion

International Fire Service Division

Here at the Cedarburg Fire Department we are blessed with the very best equipment for our volunteers. We like to pay it forward to help those who are not as fortunate, so we teamed up and we donated all old gear to the Fire Service International, a division of Hearts in Motion. All equipment gets donated to local fire departments in Guatemala, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and other parts of Central and South America.
