Congratulations Harvey Corrigan!
Harvey accomplished Good Samaritan Act
Advanced Disposal – Ferguson Township
Details of the Recognition
Harvey Corrigan, a truck driver for Advanced Disposal in Ferguson Township, PA, was picking up trash from a local Subway when he found a pickup truck stopped in the trafficway. Inside the truck, Corrigan found an unresponsive man, called 911, then quickly pulled the man from the vehicle to begin CPR.
Within minutes, township officers arrived on the scene and eventually resuscitated the man.
“What I like about this incident is it’s the perfect textbook case about what you want to have happen in your community,” said Police Chief Diane Conrad to the Centre Daily Times. “But it only happens if people are trained and step up to the challenge.”
At Advanced Disposal’s annual meeting in January, Corrigan was presented with the Good Samaritan Employee of the Year Award for his rescue efforts. He was the only employee of 5,400 to win the award.
