Message from the Fire Chief

Welcome to the North Cedar Fire Department.

The North Cedar Fire Department is made up of dedicated members from within our community. These members come from various backgrounds and bring with them, a wide variety of life experiences. The one common thing that our members share is their commitment to the values outlined in our Vision and Mission Statements supporting our department and our community and it is my privilege to serve with these outstanding individuals.

Please feel free to browse the different areas of our site where you will find useful information on fire prevention and life safety, burning regulations, training, operations and upcoming events.

Vision: With a family and community focus, the North Cedar Fire Department is a dynamic organization founded on respect for the contributions of all members, past and present.  Our team is dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of firefighters, best practices in training and excellence in all areas of service. 

Mission: To serve our community and evolve with an ever changing fire service so that our training and equipment reflect the safest, most current fire suppression, rescue and first response capabilities. To promote community safety, especially for young people, through education and mentoring initiatives, and to grow our capacity to support families in need, student scholarships, or other areas where we can have a positive impact.
