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
