Several Round Rock firefighters were honored for saving the life of an 18-month-old girl.

On the morning of November 4, 2022, firefighters were dispatched for a little girl who wasn't breathing.

When they arrived, they started CPR and several minutes later, the patient regained a pulse.

She was taken to a hospital and was able to make a full recovery.

Last week, the firefighters involved were honored with a Phoenix Award, which honors public safety personnel that "truly saved a person’s life in the fullest sense, not just kept them alive."

The City of Round Rock says, "These are true heroes," adding, "The actions of these public safety personnel serve as a real-life example of their sincere dedication to service. Round Rock is safer because of YOU!"
