Press Release, U.S. Postal Service

The forecast calls for heavy snow, strong winds, and treacherous conditions. Yet, postal carriers will make every reasonable attempt to deliver letters and packages to western NY customers.

The U.S. Postal Service is once again 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 Western NY District Manager Jean Lovejoy. “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!

The Western NY District covers ZIP Codes beginning with 140 through 149.
