Keep the Path Clear

Keep the path clear

Frigid temperatures and heavy snow storms this week have forced the cancellation of thousands of flights across the country and prompted many citizens braving the arctic chill to add several extra layers to their clothing to keep warm. When thinking of your safety during this frosty time, be sure to consider the safety of your mail carrier.

U.S. Postal Service mail carriers are braving the winter storms to ensure their customer’s mail is delivered safely and on time. To help aid them in their task, keep the following tips in mind when the weather outside is frightful:

–        Clear snow and ice from paths leading to the mailbox at your residence.

–        Make sure any steps and porches leading to a mailbox are also clear of snow and ice.

–        Remove snow accumulation on the street in front of your mailbox that may have been left behind by plows.

Follow the safety tips above after each winter storm to help make this season a safe one for all.
