Hero Donna Fowler

Letter Carrier Donna Fowler was delivering mail recently in East Meadow, NY, when she spotted a fire between two homes.

Fowler asked a resident to call 911, then located a bucket and water source and safely battled the blaze until firefighters arrived.

A couple whose property was at risk later contacted the local Post Office to praise Fowler for her actions.

“They believe the fire would have spread had it not been for Donna’s quick thinking,” said East Meadow Postmaster Pauline Agricola.
