Anthrax Detection Equipment Installed In Cheyenne

Cheyenne, Wy – The U.S. Postal Service has installed
anthrax-detection equipment at its mail distribution center in
Cheyenne.
Al DeSarro is a Postal Service spokesman in Denver. He says such
equipment is being installed at 283 mail processing sites
nationwide over two years.
About 100 sites already have operational anthrax-detection
equipment.
The Cheyenne Mail Processing and Distribution Center is one of
the first facilities in the Rocky Mountain region to get the
equipment. The center has about 300 employees and processes an
average of 840-thousand pieces of mail each day.
