Where there’s smoke

Portland, ME, Letter Carrier Sarah Faulkner was recently delivering mail when she heard a smoke detector going off inside a residence.

Seeing no vehicles parked outside the home, Faulkner rushed to the front door and got no response when she knocked.

The Postal Service employee immediately called 911 and remained on the scene until emergency responders arrived.

Firefighters discovered food ablaze on a stove and extinguished the flames before they could spread.

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