An online petition that asks that the four West Webster firefighters shot on Christmas Eve be honored with the Medal of Freedom has now received enough signatures to be reviewed by the White House.
The petition, which started on December 28th, surpassed the 25,000 signature mark just after 3pm on Friday.
It looks to bestow the highest civilian honor on Mike Chiapperini, Tomasz Kaczowka, Joseph Hofstetter and Ted Scardino.
Chiapperini and Kaczowka were killed by a gunman while responding to a fire on Christmas Eve. Hofstetter and Scardino were injured.
