Remembering Last Year’s Superstorm Sandy

October 17, 2013

It’s hard to forget that it was just a year ago that powerful Superstorm Sandy harshly impacted NY, NJ, and much of the Northeast. The powerful storm damaged homes and businesses and left them completely inoperative. These areas were so affected that even a year later, many people continue to feel the negative financial repercussions, as seen in this recent article on the Huffington Post.

Diesel Direct worked 24 hours a Day Providing Fuel Delivery to Restore Power

We worked overtime to assist both our regular customers and new customers during this trying time. Additionally, we helped keep the Red Cross of NY in operation, kept National Grid utility trucks fueled so they could be out restoring power, assisted in hundreds of generator refills throughout New England, NY, and NJ, in addition to other initiatives. Direct Diesel’s Executive Chairman Dan Abrams reflected on the situation: “Our corporate headquartersnear Boston, served as command central and was staffed 24 hours a day for several days. Looking back, we are proud of how our dedicated staff was able to respond to emergency situations and help out these communities in need as much as possible.”

This is particularly true if they have to shut-down for any period of time. The best thing we can do is to be prepared for the worst with backup power ready and in place. Diesel Direct provides a unique opportunity for our customers to properly manage their fuel needs.
