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.

Each of your members displayed a willingness to go above and beyond the call to ensure multiple delivery missions to facilities. You kept the principal Aerial Port of Debarkation generations filled for constant use for all Joint Warfighter’s benefit so they could meet mission. Your Emergency Response Team was prepared and again, integrated across the board with key stakeholders.

Matt Ott, CDR, SC, US Navy

The thanks goes out to you and your outstanding crew. I handled life support for the main port in Port-au-Prince, and while Foster Fuels was present, fuel was not just taken care of, but incredibly flexible and adaptive to multiple needs. It was as easy as simply talking with your folks and they leaned forward and took care of the need.

1Lt Travis Michelena, JLC, Haiti

I just wanted to take a moment and commend your company and the fine crew that I had the pleasure of working with during the Kentucky Ice Storms. In my short time with FEMA and working seven major disasters, I have never worked with any contracting team that was more professional and such a pleasure to work with. We faces incredible weather conditions and long hours but I never heard one complaint out of the entire crew. The only thing I heard was what can we do now and how can we better complete and make the mission a success.
