Foster Fuels Responds to Winter Storm Jonas
January 28, 2016 – Foster Fuels responded to winter storm Jonas on January 22 through January 24, 2016. The winter storm brought more than two feet of snow from the Washington, D.C area to New York City. Heavy snow also impacted many parts of the Mid-Atlantic, bringing more than a foot to over 14 states.
As the storm hit, all five Foster Fuels locations were on high alert. Divisions such as our Hearth and Home and the Emergency Response Division were working overtime to service residential and commercial customers.
Foster Fuels’ heating oil and propane division worked long hours as extra trucks were provided to service Virginia residents before and after the storm. With fuel deliveries and residential maintenance in progress, customers all over Virginia were delighted to know Foster Fuels was doing their best to keep up with the increase in demand before the storm.
“Gas log installation, techs, and delivery drivers are to be commended for being polite and professional.” Carroll Vandegrift, a new Foster Fuels customer said, “Tank was filled at 7:15 pm the night before the snowstorm. Thanks, Foster Fuels for going way above expectations.”
Foster Fuels was on the move assisting local and mission-critical customers in nine states from North Carolina and New York with the specialized Emergency Response Team. Mission-critical businesses scattered around the East Coast were able to operate thanks to the Foster Fuels drivers who went above and beyond.
Foster Fuels is happy to serve all of our customers. Thank you for clearing your driveways and ordering early. We are truly thankful to call you family.
