Lincoln, NE, City Carrier Lisa Savicky was in the process of delivering mail as usual on her route when she heard a startling sound. An unseen woman nearby was crying and pleading desperately for help.

Savicky focused on the calls for help and found that they were coming from a partially open garage door. She moved quickly to the door and slid underneath it. That’s where she spotted a woman sprawled on the ground. The person had fallen to the hard concrete surface and didn’t have the ability to get back onto her feet.

Wasting no time, Savicky moved swiftly to the frightened customer, assessed the situation, and called 911. She remained by the customer’s side until emergency responders arrived.

“Lisa attends very quietly to her work, but made a very loud statement through her actions on August 20, 2015,” said Postmaster Kerry Kowalski. “Her alertness, quick thinking and compassion saved one of her customers’ life.”
