Hurricane Season Is Here, Join EMA’s Disaster Fuel Response Program


Ninety percent of annual tropical activity in the Atlantic basin occurs after August 1st. Energy Marketers of America (EMA) urges you to stay prepared for the destructive effects of hurricane season. This season is expected to have an above normal amount of tropical activity over the Atlantic basin.

Energy marketers are at ground zero during disasters and always stand ready to respond. They work around the clock to distribute fuel where it is needed. EMA, the PPA, and other state associations work to assist marketers in removing obstacles to their ability to supply and distribute fuel and to help with resources. Our association stays in constant communication with federal/state government and provides information to government agencies regarding stations that are open following a disaster.

EMA founded the Disaster Fuel Response Program which provides information about marketers who are willing to deliver fuel to utilities, government agencies, first responders, medical facilities, companies and organizations that respond to disasters. The PPA urges you to consider adding your company to the program listing. Members that join the program are under no obligations whatsoever, it simply means you might be contacted by a business or government entity to seek your business. All sizes of marketing companies are welcome in the program.
