2018 CGFD Center Fire Company Shred-it Event October 6th

This fire prevention week the members Center Fire Company #1 of the Cedar Grove Volunteer Fire Department in conjunction with Safe Shredding LLC of New Jersey will be holding its annual community document destruction event.  The document destruction shred will be held Saturday October 6th 2018 from 8am to 12pm at Center Fire Company located in the Municipal Building 525 Rt.23 Cedar Grove, NJ 07009.


            Storage of excessive documents not only takes up your valuable space, but adds an unnecessary fire load to your home and can become a fire hazard.  Just as important, is preventing theft of your sensitive information.  The Cedar Grove Volunteer Fire Department in cooperation with Safe Shredding LLC is offering a safe secure way of disposing of these documents, and avoiding potential identity theft.


            Center Fire Company Members are asking for a nominal donation of $10.00 per copier paper size box of documents.  The documents will be shredded on site in your presence.  Bring your old bank statements, credit card statements, tax records and any other sensitive documents to be shredded.  We look forward to seeing you there.



It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Cedar Grove Fire Department web site! The purpose of our web site is to educate and inform about the vast array of services, and the highly trained and motivated personnel that make up the Cedar Grove Fire Department.

Our Department is a 100% volunteer organization with four fire stations located throughout the township. We protect well over 12,000 people within 4.5 square miles and are actively involved with surrounding fire departments providing mutual aid wherever and whenever possible.

In these pages you'll see the stations, the apparatus and the men and women who are dedicated to protecting your lives, property and well-being. Look around awhile and learn about our excellent training program, the special operations team, local fire prevention events, how to become a member and much more.

Your feedback is encouraged, so that we can respond to your needs. Let us know whether your visit was informative, and if you have any questions or comments, please email your remarks to chief@cedargrovefd.org

We hope you'll become familiar with who we are and what we do ...we're YOUR Cedar Grove Fire Department.
