Deputy Hickey honored by the Red Cross

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Macon County Sheriff’s Deputy Bart Hickey of Forsyth was honored last month by the American Red Cross for pulling a driver from a burning car on January 23 on Stevens Creek Boulevard.

Hickey was honored with the Public Service Award at the 13th annual Serving Central Illinois Saluting Our Heroes Breakfast at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington.

Hickey risked serious injury and possible electrocution as the woman’s vehicle, which was on fire, was on top of an electrical box.

Hickey told the Bloomington newspaper, The Pantagraph, that the woman’s life was at stake, and “there was no time to think about what I was doing.”

Hickey was also honored by the Macon County Board in February.
