While Ellsworth, KS, City Carrier Chad Petz delivered along his route, he encountered a customer that appeared less than well.
Petz approached the individual and asked about his condition. When the man relayed his blood pressure readings, Petz knew the customer needed assistance.
Fearing the customer’s health was in jeopardy, Petz called for an ambulance and waited with the man until it arrived. As they waited, the customer told Petz that he didn’t have a phone, so he waited for his mail carrier to show up in the hope that he could offer assistance.
“Chad is a great employee and I am proud of his response that day,” said Postmaster Karen Goddard. “He reacted calmly and quickly. This customer was lucky to have Chad at his doorstep to call for help.”
