One million miles. Three decades. Zero preventable accidents for nearly a dozen North Jersey mail carriers.

To put it in perspective, you would have to travel around the earth 40.1 times to that distance.

Six Hackensack letter carriers -- among nearly a dozen from the area -- achieved just that making them recipients of the National Safety Council’s Million Mile Award:

  • Yvette Legette 
  • Michael Manzo 
  • Frank Heaney
  • Antonio Centron
  • Sheila Young
  • Bryant McFadden
  • Al Tariq Franklin (postmaster)

Other North Jersey carriers being honored include:

  • Arthur Andreano – Safety Manager, USPS Northern NJ District
  • Stephen Cannon – Safety Spec., USPS Northern NJ District
  • Letter Carriers’ Coworkers – USPS So. Hackensack NJ
  • Eric Henry – District Manager/A, USPS Northern NJ District
  • Maryanne Batten – P.O. Operations Mgr., USPS Northern NJ District   

The ceremony will be held Friday, Aug. 24 in South Hackensack.
