We extend our heartfelt condolences to the Keyport Fire Department and the Pfleger family during this extremely difficult time. May he rest in peace. Thank you for your service to your community.
Rest easy Chief, we have it from here.The Keyport Fire Department regrets to announce the Line Of Duty Death of Active Chief of Department Timothy Pfleger. Chief Pfleger joined the Keyport Fire Department as a cadet in 2007, in 2008 he joined Keyport Fire Patrol where he served the ranks of Lieutenant and Captain. In 2019 he was elected as the Third Assistant Chief of the Department, from there he served two more years as an Assistant Chief until he was elected as the 2022 Chief of Department. Tim will forever be remembered for the amazing leader he was and the unbelievable example he set for the members of the KFD. Not only was he a great leader but an incredible friend who will be missed everyday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Pfleger Family, services will be posted when made available.
We would like to take some time and congratulate four of our own for completing a 24 hour Rapid Intervention Crew training class at All Hands Fire in Neptune. These gentlemen learned strategies and processes to remove a firefighter from a structure in the event of an emergency as part of a RIC team.

The Southard Fire Department would like to congratulate 4 of its own as they shed their red "Probationary Member" helmet shields and were awarded their black "Active Firefighter" helmet shields during tonight meeting. These members have dedicated more than a year to training, hard work, and dedication to the Southard Fire Department and we are honored to call them our brothers. Upon passing their Chiefs test, they have proven they are truly ready to serve the residents of Howell District 3.
Southard Fire Department would like to take a moment to recognize one of our own. As firefighters we are all driven to answer the call when someone is in need. It is something we do gladly and without hesitation. It is a large part of each one of us. Every once in a while, a firefighter goes above and beyond when answering this call. When this happens, it deserves to be recognized, shared, and celebrated. A few months ago, we received word that one of our own had his only kidney failing and in need of a kidney donation. One of our members is answering this call for a fellow firefighter and friend. Southard Fire Dept’s 2nd Assistant Chief Travis Tucker will be donating a kidney through the National Kidney Registry. Travis made every effort to donate directly to our member in need. Unfortunately, he is not a match. However, by donating through this wonderful organization he is moving our brother up on the recipients list. He is also creating a chain of possible donations that will pay it forward and give many others the opportunity to receive the much-needed organs even faster. Travis, know that your extended family at Southard are proud of you for making this selfless act of kindness. We are here for you and your family if you need anything as you work your way through the healing process. Please help us in thanking the National Kidney Registry | Facilitating Living Kidney Donation and www.organdonor.gov/ for making this possible.

This is amazing!!!!
God bless all involved.
I donated my kidney via swap on 5/3 so that my husband Scott Pearson could receive his gift of life.
We were part of a three way chain.
All 6 surgeries done on the same day.
There are many ways to be a living donor.
If you have any questions about the experience of donor or recipient, feel free to reach out.
We love talking to people and spreading the word about kidney donation and transplant.

Who would of known that I would meet a young kid when he was a teenager in the firehouse and become great friends for life and that same friend would someday donate a organ selflessly to me to save my life. I am the person Travis Tucker is doing this for and I am Forever grateful.
