Earl Walker received the Workplace Safety Award at the Red Cross’ Real Heroes Breakfast.
In Sept. 2014, Walker noticed one of his customers, a 95-year-old man, had not picked up his mail. The gentleman’s car was in the driveway.He became concerned and knocked on the door and windows but there was no response.
“When he didn’t answer, I really was concerned about him,” said Walker.
He then alerted the Binghamton Police Department.
When officers responded, they found the man had fallen, was trapped and in need of medical attention. The man was taken to a local hospital.
