Are you ready?

During National Preparedness Month, the Postal Service is reminding managers and emergency management teams to be ready at a moment’s notice.

USPS employees at every level must be prepared to respond to — and recover quickly from — emergencies.

Facility managers and other postal leaders should:

• Post emergency procedures and make sure they are shared with employees.

• Make sure employees know what the USPS National Employee Emergency Hotline (888-363-7462) is and when to use it. After an emergency, employees can call the hotline to report their condition and check for changes in their scheduled work reporting status.

• Remind employees to update their emergency contact information.

• Review proper head-counting procedures.

Checklists and other tools are available on the USPS National Preparedness Blue page.
