******** MAIL SAFETY ********
What Should I do if I Receive an Anthrax Threat by Mail?
Do not handle the mail piece or package suspected of contamination. Make sure that damaged or suspicious packages are isolated and the immediate area cordoned off. Ensure that all persons who have touched the mail piece wash their hands with soap and water. Notify your local law enforcement authorities. List all persons who have touched the letter and/or envelope. Include contact information and have this information available for the authorities. Place all items worn when in contact with the suspected mail piece in plastic bags and have them available for law enforcement agents. As soon as practical, shower with soap and water. Notify the Center for Disease Control Emergency Response at 770-488-7100 for answers to any questions.
The mail is safe! People shouldn't stop using the mail because of these isolated incidents. The simple act of paying attention to incoming mail will go a long way in keeping it safe and viable. Everyone, in the mailing< COMMUNITY, AS WELL AS THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, SHOULD EXERCISE COMMON SENSE.
