It is with a very heavy heart we announce the passing of twenty six year old Firefighter/Paramedic Cody Richardson. Cody has saved a lot of lives, but after all efforts were exhausted, Cody’s life was not able to be saved. Cody had just completed his shift at Zionsville Fire Station 91 at 07:00 AM on March, 4th.
Later this same day, Cody was found unresponsive at a farm in northern Boone County, transported to a local area hospital and was pronounced dead of a cause still to be determined. Cody was hired as a part-time Firefighter/EMT at Zionsville Fire Department on September 3rd, 2007. He went through the Zionsville Fire Department full-time hiring process and was hired as a Full-time Firefighter/EMT on August 31, 2008. Cody later went through paramedic school and became a Firefighter/Paramedic with Zionsville Fire Department. Cody will truly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, family and friends.
Funeral arrangements are pending and will be forwarded once available.
