Holleran for help

Rural Carrier Associate Jason Holleran was delivering mail on a February day in Tarentum, PA, when he came upon an older customer in need of assistance.

The man had slipped and fallen in his driveway, leaving him stranded in temperatures below freezing as he desperately yelled for help.

Holleran rushed to the customer’s aid, called 911 and safely got him on his feet and into his residence to warm up until paramedics arrived.

“He is so appreciative of Jason’s heroic actions,” said local Postmaster Jim Aiello. “He believes Jason saved his life.”

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