Great Scott!

City Carrier Assistant Scott Faticone was recently delivering mail in Rochester, NY, when he noticed that a customer’s home was on fire.

He called 911 and banged on the door to alert anyone inside.

The residents were unaware of the fire, but because of Faticone’s actions, a mother, daughter and their dog were able to get out safely.

WROC, a local TV station, reported that firefighters were able to extinguish the flames but the family was displaced because of damage to the structure.

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