The Brookneal, Virginia-based energy provider dispatched more than 100 vehicles southward – including trucks carrying diesel fuel, gasoline and propane – to prepare for the support of critical infrastructure.

“We are tremendously proud of the dedication our team exhibits and the sacrifices they make to support those who need help in the wake of storms like Dorian,” says Will Rohrig, vice president of Mission Critical service for Foster Fuels. “Our number one goal is to keep them safe as they continue to support ongoing relief efforts on the ground in areas affected.”

Foster Fuels has been working with FEMA for about 15 years, providing emergency fuel services to government agencies, hospitals, communication sites and private industry in relief efforts after natural disasters. The company says it will actively support relief efforts as needed to keep critical infrastructure online after Hurricane Dorian moves through the region.
