Tiffany Ejima-Zane, Honolulu

Letter carrier with packages

Letter Carrier Tiffany Ejima-Zane was recently delivering mail in Honolulu when she discovered an older customer who had collapsed outside his home.

While his wife called 911, Ejima-Zane rushed to provide first aid and was assisted by a senior activity program driver also on the scene.

The 911 dispatcher guided Ejima-Zane and the driver as they performed CPR until emergency responders arrived and took over.

The man’s son-in-law later contacted the Post Office to thank Ejima-Zane.

The man would not have survived without her intervention, according to doctors.

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