Dodge City, KS, Letter Carrier Rex Romesburg

A morning break at the Dodge City, KS, Post Office recently took a life-threatening turn for an employee who began choking while eating breakfast.

Letter Carrier Rex Romesburg was on his way to the break room when he heard another co-worker call out for help.

Romesburg rushed to the choking employee and performed the Heimlich maneuver until the obstruction was dislodged.

“I was clear across the room and I’m not sure what would’ve happened before I could respond,” Postmaster Dorothy Briseno said. “Thank goodness Rex was right there.”

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