With snowstorms on the horizon, the Minden Post Office is asking customers to help keep carriers safe by shoveling a path to their mailbox as soon as possible after it snows. Every year many carriers are injured from slipping on snow and ice while delivering their mail routes.
“We want our carriers to return home healthy each night,” said Postmaster Deb Hays. “Keeping a path clear to your mailbox will go a long way toward keeping our carriers safe and ensuring mail delivery each day.”
Minden carriers, who each make an average of more than 600 deliveries daily, will continue to do their best to deliver the mail, according to Hays, but when mailboxes and approaches to mailboxes are buried in snow and ice it can make it difficult for carriers to make deliveries safely. Unsafe conditions such as unshoveled snow, icy sidewalks, or large amounts of snow blocking mailboxes can delay or even prevent mail delivery.
