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.

CGFD Now Accepting Applications For Junior Firefighters

Posted on September 3, 2010

The Cedar Grove Fire Department is pleased to announce its new Junior Firefighters Program, a unique opportunity for students between the ages of 16-17 years old to serve their community.  Junior Firefighters are able to participate in fire/rescue drills, learn life-saving techniques, become familiar with the different fire apparatus, and receive free training all under the guidance and protection of experienced firemen. 


Junior Firefighters are issued actual firefighter turnout gear (helmet, fire coat,  gloves, boots, etc.), and after being properly trained, they are able to assist on actual emergency incidents.  Although kept out of dangerous conditions, junior firefighters serve a vital role in assisting the firefighters.


If your son or daughter is interested in joining the Cedar Grove Fire Department’s Junior Firefighters Program, please email Chief Bannon at chief@cedargrovefire.org
