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.

Well, I am still around to continue to bug people and it might just be possible what Matt did for me had something to do with it.

Thanks, Matt. First responders are valuable to our community.
