Rapid response

Postmaster Gregory Harrison was recently on his way to work in Charleston, AR, when he spotted a house on fire.

Harrison stopped and asked a bystander to call 911 while he rushed to the scene, where he helped four adults and several pets reach safety.

The Postal Service employee also moved a vehicle in the carport out of harm’s way.

The blaze destroyed the home.

“Due to Greg’s quick actions, lives were saved,” said local Post Office Operations Manager Jeremiah Coffey.

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