UGI Honors Employee During National Safety Month

17 Jun 2019

In honor of National Safety Month, we’re proud to recognize UGI Meter Reader, Kyle Christman, who recently received national recognition for going above and beyond to act quickly and safely to save a man’s life in October 2017.

The Society of Gas Operators (SOGO) selected Christman as a co-winner of the 2019 Dick Morgan Heroism Award. SOGO established this Heroism Award to provide recognition for an extraordinary service or act of heroism performed by an employee of a member company.

What seemed to be a typical day for Kyle turned into something quite different. Kyle and a fellow UGI employee were on the job at Lehigh Valley International Airport. After finishing the job, they went inside the airport where they saw a man having a seizure, and what seemed to be a heart attack. He was surrounded by airport employees, but no one was taking action. Luckily, Kyle is a part-time EMT, so when he saw the man needed help, he was able to step in and use an AED to stabilize him until the ambulance arrived. Kyle’s quick actions saved the man’s life.

The Dick Morgan Heroism Award was originally established in 1996 as the Heroism Award and renamed in 2001 after Dick Morgan, a past Society president, and former long-term employee of Con Edison of New York who lost his life as a result of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11th. The award is an opportunity to offer recognition to employees of member companies who have performed heroic acts over and above the call of duty.

We thank Kyle for his heroic actions during this emergency situation and for his dedication to public safety and protecting life.
