Yi and Uhrick honored as heroes


Ten-year-old Sarah Yi was honored for her bravery under fire last week with a “Hero Award,” presented by the Fishers Fire Dept. and Fishers Town Council.

Yi was honored alongside Hamilton County dispatcher Larkin Uhrick, who lead Yi through one of the most trying situations of her young life as she took the phone and provided information to emergency personnel during a Dec. 19 family emergency.

“She was very calm,” said FFD Capt. Ron Lipps. “Every firefighter who heard the call was impressed by her demeanor and how well she was able to provide literally life-saving care.”
