Citizen Heroism Award Presented To 10-Year-Old Isabella Einerson by UFA and UPDMar 06, 2015 11:36AM ● By City Of Taylorsville
At approximately 2:30 on the morning of December 9, 2014, units from Unified Fire Authority (UFA) and Unified Police Department (UPD) were called to the home of Isabella Einerson, where it was reported that her mother was suffering from a serious medical emergency that had rendered her incapacitated.
As emergency crews began to assess and treat her mother, it was learned that 10-year-old Isabella had woken to the faint sounds of distress coming from her mother’s room and upon investigating was able to determine that her mother was in need of emergency care.
“Isabella called 911 and handled the call better than most adults would have, I was blown away by how responsible and calm this 10-year-old was,” reported Officer Kochanowski from UPD.
Paramedics from UFA were able to successfully treat Isabella’s mother but reported that this call would have certainly had a different outcome if not for the heroic actions of Isabella. For these life-saving actions it is an honor for us to recognize Isabella with a Citizen Heroism Award on behalf of UFA and UPD.
