On this page you will find the storied history of the Cedarburg Fire Department. Over the next few months more will be added to the right in the History column as research on the subject is done. The Cedarburg Fire Department is lucky to have many great first hand documents to help put our past together. All of our original meeting minutes dating back to 1866 still exist. However, all of the minutes prior to 1925 are in Low German. The Cedarburg Fire Department is also greateful to have a large collection for photographs documenting our history.
