In 2001, Jeremy Wifler was a sick 4-year-old whose constant seizures routinely caused him to stop breathing.
The 911 calls were so regular that emergency dispatchers would alert the crews with simply: “It’s Jeremy.”
Firefighters began to stop by the home to see what else they could do to help. Some evenings, they stopped by just to drop off dinner.
“These guys became a part of our family,” said the boy’s mother, Rechelle Wifler.
Firefighters weren’t the only ones to embrace the Wiflers.
