Carrier Alert - definition(s)

Carrier Alert - A community service program in which a letter carrier attempts to detect possible illness or accident suffered by the customer (for example, elderly persons or persons with disabilities). When alerted by an accumulation of mail, the carrier reports the matter to local social service agencies for appropriate follow-up. This service is provided jointly with private agencies (that is, the National Association of Letter Carriers and the National Rural Letter Carriers' Association).
