Below is a memo from the USPS that shows as of 10/23/2017 there have been 88 postal vehicle fires for 2017. So basically, we have only seen a portion of those reported in the media. This is a far more dangerous problem than previously thought. Also notice that the fire potential seems to be being blamed on the carrier for unapproved modifications?? SMH
These are stats for LLV fires so far in 2017. Keep in mind if it wasn’t reported to the media, it will not be included in this list. If you know of one not on this list, please let me know! Click here to email me!
