Amber Kohn, Herrin, IL

woman and parrot

Rural Carrier Amber Kohn was delivering mail recently in Herrin, IL, when a car in front of her began weaving on the road.

Kohn saw the driver slump forward as the car slowed and rolled toward a culvert.

The Postal Service employee pulled over, ran to the car and safely accessed it to put it in park.

She then called 911 for the driver — a man who apparently suffered a seizure — and stayed with him until emergency responders arrived.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
