10/17/2017 Video star. You’ve probably seen the viral video that shows a Postal Service LLV driving through a Santa Rosa, CA, neighborhood destroyed by wildfire last week.
The video, which was shot by drone photographer Douglas Thron, appeared on “NBC Nightly News” and dozens of news sites like People.com, which headlined its story, “Deadly California Wildfire Doesn’t Stop This U.S. Postal Service Worker From Delivering Mail.”
So what’s the story behind the video?
The LLV was driven by Trevor Smith, a letter carrier based at Santa Rosa’s Roseland Station. He was honoring a request from customers who were permitted to enter the fire zone to retrieve mail and other belongings.
“The citizens in that community knew that this was a resource still for them. It is important to continue because we are a part of that community and they trust us. We want to continue that trust,” Smith told “Inside Edition” last week.
