Quakertown Fire Department recently lost a key part of their history, Past Chief Paul Neubert. Before his passing, Chief Neubert was able to pass on his knowledge and experience to many members of QFD and surrounding mutual aid companies. Most importantly, he passed his wealth of knowledge onto current QFD Battalion Chief, Kevin Neubert along with his 3 brothers, also active in the fire service. 20 members of the 58 house paid their respects to the Neubert and QFD family on the evening of February 18, 2014 at Naugle Funeral Home. Our thoughts at the 58 house are with the Neubert Family and our fellow brothers and sisters of QFD.
