Excellent work by Officer Woolley, we have been on numerous incidents over the years. A true professional! Job well done sir!OFF-DUTY HOWELL OFFICER SAVES A MAN’S LIFE
This morning while at a fitness facility in Brick, Howell Police Officer Jonathan Woolley, who was off-duty, observed an elderly male collapse.
Without hesitation, Officer Woolley began a patient assessment and determined the male was not breathing, had no pulse and was turning purple. Officer Woolley, along with a trainer who was a former police officer, immediately began chest compressions and rescue breathing. An automated external defibrillator was also applied to the patient and a shock was initiated. They continued treatment until relieved by Brick Police EMS and paramedics.
As of 10 am, the 85 year old patient was responsive and doing well according to hospital staff who contacted me to commend Officer Woolley. This was followed by a call from the MONOC paramedics who were involved in the treatment of this gentleman. Both acknowledged Officer Woolley’s and the trainer’s immediate action led to his life being saved.
Officer Woolley is a 15-year veteran of the HTPD. He is currently assigned to our Professional Development Group (training). He is also a motor officer and a member of the Monmouth County Emergency Response Team (SWAT).
This is another example how police officers are always on-duty and always ready to help those in need of assistance. In this incident, two officers worked together and saved a man’s life.
Great job by Officer Woolley and the trainer!!

This weekend was a great weekend for the Southard Fire Department as we have accomplished 2 of our large holiday goals each year. First off, we sold the remainder of our Christmas Trees, which was no easy task but due to the generosity and continued support of YOU the general public, we were able to do it. Secondly last night, we were able to complete our yearly Operation Santa and get him back to the North Pole in time to prepare for next week’s breakfast with Santa.
Next Sunday December 22nd we will be hosting Santa for breakfast from 9am until 12pm while we also run our fire truck rides outside. Tickets are sold at the door and the event is open to everybody! So if we missed you during our Operation Santa, we’d love to see you Sunday to enjoy Santa and Firetrucks!
Few special call outs in regards to this year’s events:
1. We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the two individuals who stopped by our tree stand and paid for a tree. The gotcha, THEY DIDNT TAKE ONE WITH THEM. Instead they asked us to pick families in need of tree, or just a little holiday assistance, and donate them to those families. So because of them, we were able to donate trees to 2 families.
2. We love our Operation Santa, and it is pretty clear that you do too! We do our best to get to as many of the kids in Howell Dist 3 as we can but as always, we inevitably miss some due to small dead end roads or cul-de-sacs that cant fit our trucks [which have grown in size as we get newer and newer ones], or simply scheduling conflicts. We thank you for your patience and understanding and hope to see you at our breakfast with Santa!
3. Operation Santa is a unique tradition that we try to complete yearly for the residents of Howell. However not everybody understands or appreciates it, and that’s okay. It’s important to remember that everybody is entitled to their opinion and their words, so we ask that especially during the holiday season we respect each other, our opinions, and make the best of these times with our friends and families.
As always, thank you to the residents of Howell for making this a memorable holiday season, please keep it safe and happy! ....And come by Sunday to file last minute gift requests with the big man 😉
