WOODLAND HILLS, CA (FOX 11) – The US Postal Service is talking about the hot weather and its policies for postal workers after a long-time postal carrier was found dead in her truck during the extreme heat in Woodland Hills Friday.
It didn’t matter if it was one of the hottest days of the year. Peggy Frank, a 28-year veteran with the U.S. Postal Service, was showing up to work.
“She loved what she did because she loved the people…I don’t think they realize what kind of job that it is….it is NOT an easy job,” said Frank’s sister, Lynn.
Neighbors like Robert Tipton say it’s especially tough in extreme heat.
“It was almost 120 degrees outside – when I came out it was just a wall of heat just hitting you,” said Tipton.
