Despite fires in California, mail delivery continues

El Cajon, CA, Letter Carrier Bruce Jennings returned to Ramona on Sunday to help deliver mail in a community devastated by the wildfires which swept through Southern California recently.As the destructive Southern California wildfires were brought to heel, diligent postal employees — some of whom were delivering mail on Sunday — could look back with pride on a week when they over­came adversity and delivered.

Despite the fires that ravaged homes and businesses, the mail never stopped moving. Postal employees continued delivering the mail wherever and whenever it was safe to do so. By week’s end, delivery to more than 99 percent of all residential and business addresses in Southern California — whether by letter carrier, to a Post Office box or at a temporary location — had been restored.

Mail delivery from all 147 San Diego District Post Offices resumed within two days.
