Jim Kreher: Always at the ready
Desire to help ignites Fox River Grove firefighter’s service
Jim Kreher was having coffee the morning of Oct. 25, 1995, about a block away from where a horrific accident had happened.
At 7:11 a.m., a commuter train slammed into the back of a school bus at Route 14 and Algonquin Road. Seven children were killed at the intersection, now called “Seven Angels Crossing.”
Kreher, who was there in less than a minute, was the incident commander at the scene for the Fox River Grove Fire Department, where he is deputy chief.
