Mail Carriers Challenged by Snow and Ice

Asking customers to clear the way

Minnesota – The forecast calls for heavy snow and hazardous conditions across portions of Minnesota.

The U.S. Postal Service is asking customers for their assistance by clearing snow and ice from walkways, driveways, porches and areas around the mailbox.

“Slips, trips and falls continue to be the most frequent type of injury sustained by our carriers,” said Minnesota-North Dakota District Manager Anthony Williams. “As winter conditions worsen, so do the number of accidents. By simply clearing the way, customers help reduce the risk.”

Please help mail carriers provide the best delivery service possible, as safely as possible. They will thank you, every step of the way!
