Thanks to Mr. Mailman

Kyle Mailman, a letter carrier, was recently making deliveries in a Wichita, KS, neighborhood when he detected the odor of leaking gas at a customer’s residence.

Mailman shared his concern with the homeowner, and the gas company was contacted.

Utility workers responded to the scene and repaired a leak.

The customer later visited the local Post Office to express her gratitude.

“She thanked Kyle for saving her life and her home,” said Customer Services Manager Clifford Jackson.

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