(POCATELLO, ID) – A Pocatello firefighter is receiving the state’s highest award. Captain Ryan O’Hearn saved a man’s life during a fire on the 1400-block of Elm Street nine years ago. O’Hearn tells KPVI that he’d have done it for anyone, since it’s part of his job. He’ll receive the Idaho Medal of Honor this Saturday, along with two other firefighters, at the Idaho Fallen Firefighter Memorial in Boise.
