A Hero Among Us On a regular day in early October, Jimmy Lindblom was in his truck and out on his route making deliveries for Olympic Metals. "I was just driving down the road and noticed some kids in the back seat of a car. Then they slowed down and I thought they were going to make a turn. All of a sudden, I heard a squealing, then a BLAM! "I could see glass coming out of the window where I had just seen the kids, so I got out of my truck and started walking toward their car. I wanted to make sure the kids were okay. It wasn't until I got closer that I saw the motorcycle and the driver on the ground, looking in really bad shape. "People all around were on their phones, trying to call 911. I just jumped right in, don't know if I even thought about it. The motorcyclist was bleeding pretty badly and I knew I had to somehow slow it down. So I pulled my belt off and put it around the man's leg. "He was breathing pretty laboriously, too, and I wanted to slow him down to keep him from going into shock. I knew that if he were to go into shock, it wouldn't be a good thing. I coached him a bit and talked him through slowing down his breaths. Right after that, the police showed up, and an officer had a real tourniquet, so we put that on the man. Then I got out of the way."

World'sMostAdmired Reliance has been named a 2018 World's Most Admired Company by Fortune magazine! Executives, directors, and analysts rated enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, and Reliance came in 4 th overall in the Metals industry. We finished among the top three in categories including Long- Term Investments, Financial Soundness, Quality of Management, and People Management.

Great job, everyone, and a great way to start the year!

Amazingly, Jimmy then just went about his day, getting his job done. Later on, he got a call and was told that he had definitely saved the motorcyclist's life. When Greg Gibb, Olympic Metal's division manager, got wind of what had happened, he was quick to proclaim Jimmy a hero. "I cannot express exactly how proud we are of Jimmy, who not only stopped and tended to this individual, but who also has the smarts to do what needed to be done when no one else either could, or would." Jimmy's actions exemplify the concept of SMART Safety: looking out for our peers. On the job, we typically think of that as looking after our co-workers – whether it's keeping someone from tripping over a cord in the office, or making sure everyone's wearing the proper protective equipment (PPE) on

the warehouse floor. As a driver, Jimmy's peers are those he shares the road with – and that could be anyone, from families to motorcyclists. Thanks, Jimmy, for being an active driver and for making SMART choices. You're a Reliance example and a hero!
