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.
