First responder Matt Kiefelbach


A little over a week ago I had a problem where I could not breathe. My wife had the presence of mind to immediately call 911. Thanks, Jo!

I became a little confused but next thing I remember, some man “Matt” was sitting in front of me, working on me and applying oxygen, etc.

To make a long story short, I was soon on my way to the hospital.
