Attention Senior Citizens and Disabled Adults in Sausalito and Marin City:
The Postal Carrier Alert Program is part of a nationwide effort by the U.S. Postal Service and National Association of Letter Carriers designed to help keep an extra eye on older adults and persons who are disabled. Your postal carrier will report any concerns to the local law enforcement agency, who will then come check on your welfare.
Your local Postal Carriers have been trained to notice changes, such as mail or newspapers piled up, porch lights on at odd times, or other signs that may indicate the possibility that something might be wrong at your residence.
Seniors can sign up for the program by completing and returning the registration form to the Sausalito Post Office or the Sausalito Police Department. The form can also be downloaded here in PDF format
or by calling 415-289-4170.
This program is also available to Novato seniors. Novato residents can access the form on the City of Novato’s webpage, www.novatoseniors.org/niep or by calling the Margaret Todd Senior Center at 415-899-8296.
The Postal Carrier Alert Program is co-sponsored by the Age-Friendly Sausalito, the Marguerita C. Johnson Senior Center in Marin City, the Sausalito Police Department, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office, and coordinated by the Episcopal Senior Communities (ESC).
