Welcome

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.

On Thursday, August 15th 2019 at 1:50 PM, Cedar Grove Police Department received a report of a fire inside New Kitchen Restaurant at #8 Bowden Road. Upon arrival, officers found fire coming from the roof. Police immediately began evacuating the building. Cedar Grove Fire Department arrived shortly and began working on extinguishing the fire. The fire began to extend into adjacent, attached, Dry Cleaning Store. But was stopped there by firefighters. The cause of the fire is under investigation, however it does appear to be accidental in nature. The Montclair, Verona, North Caldwell, Caldwell and Fairfield Fire Departments assisted along with the Cedar Grove Ambulance and Rescue Squad. “Due to the efforts of all the first responders the fire was contained to the restaurant with some extension in the roof area of Lucy Dry Cleaners. The fire department with the assistance of the adjacent towns made a great stop. There are a number of attached business and this fire could have been far worse. Most importantly, there were no injuries reported.
