Solutions for your mail if your home has been impacted by the Waldo Canyon Fire

Colorado Springs – Currently, all retail operations and postal delivery routes have resumed to areas affected by the Waldo Canyon fire. All mail that was being held at a temporary location has been rerouted to the regular office for delivery.

If your home has been impacted by the fire, postal officials recommend an alternate form of delivery such as a Post Office Box, with plenty of availability at all area offices.

Another solution would be a temporary forward to another address. Temporary forwards can easily be reversed or changed once longer term housing is found.

These alternatives will ensure the safety of your mail and reduce wait time at Post Offices.

Customers can file an electronic change of address online at or by calling 1-800-ASK-USPS. (1-800-275-8777). Change of Address forms are also available at area Post Offices.
