‘The right thing to do’

Antioch, TN, Rural Carrier Associate Cedric Moore

Rural Carrier Associate Cedric Moore was recently delivering mail in Antioch, TN, when he spotted flames shooting out of a home’s roof.

Moore stopped, called 911 and rushed to the front door to alert anyone who may have been inside.

A woman soon emerged, unaware of the danger, but an older man was reluctant to leave.

Firefighters soon arrived to battle the blaze, and the man was safely evacuated from the residence.

Taking the time to get involved, Moore said later, “was the right thing to do.”
