Fire man

Letter Carrier Christopher Giacini was recently delivering mail in a Glendale, AZ, neighborhood when he spotted smoke pouring out of a four-unit apartment building.

While a bystander called 911, Giacini leapt into action, banging on the front door of each unit, shouting “fire” and guiding residents and their pets to safety.

Firefighters soon arrived to battle the blaze.

“Chris is a great employee and a wonderful person who cares about the people he comes in contact with,” said Glendale Postmaster Cathy Hernandez.

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