Porter Square Carrier A Hero Aiding Injured Officer (*click here for full story)
Congratulating Christophe Paolera, (from left to right), are Steward John Dickenson,
Branch 34 President Jerry McCarthy, and Chief Steward Billy Criscitelli.
Chris Paolera saved the day, as a Cambridge Police Officer was struck by a truck that was backing up. The Mooney Street Carrier, while in the performance of his duties, did all the right things to get Emergency Services to the scene, first by reporting the accident on the squad car radio, and then having a passer-by call 911. This week, Paolera was honored with the NALC Local Hero Pin and a Letter from NALC President Fred Rolando, after being nominated at his Porter Square office, with President Jerry McCarthy making the presentation. He has also been entered nationally for the NALC Heroes of the Year Program, which honors Brothers and Sisters annually for going above and beyond their duties as Letter Carriers, and assisting those in need in our communities where we serve.
Chris, on behalf of the entire Branch 34 Membership, Congratulations on a job well done!
