USPS volunteers will deliver medication, in case of bioterrorism attack
Postal letter carriers would deliver supplies of the antibiotic doxycycline to residential addresses throughout the Louisville metro area after a terrorist attack using an air-borne biological agent such as anthrax. The medication would be delivered within 48 hours of the attack.
“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds;” including, when necessary, the delivery of life-saving medicine in the event of bioterrorist attack.
