Top 3 Signs Your Business Needs an Emergency Fuel Contract

March 29, 2019

Does your business require an emergency fuel plan in preparation to avoid critical downtime? If you do not currently have a guaranteed fuel contract in place for emergency standby generator fuel, there is a good chance that you are putting your operation at great risk. Here are the top three signs that your business needs an emergency fuel contract to avoid downtime.

1. If Downtime Could Mean Catastrophic Consequences

If your business involves machines that must be in service 100 percent of the time to avoid or immediate catastrophic consequences could result, such as loss of life or financial collapse, you absolutely must have an emergency fuel delivery plan in place. An example of this type of business would be a hospital where patients lives are literally dependant on the ability to power machines, and lights are required for surgery. A pharmaceutical company or research facility where vital solutions need to be kept refrigerated would be another example. In these circumstances, you must have power at all times.

2. If Your Business Loses Power And Financial Losses Are Likely

The enemy of any company that is conducting business most or all of every day is downtime. Businesses like Amazon warehouses or internet providers do everything possible to avoid it. Some companies can lose thousands of dollars every minute their computers or servers are down. If you are responsible for such a company and you do not have a guaranteed emergency fuel contract in place, you need to get one immediately.

3. You Don’t Know Who Currently Provides Your Emergency Fuel Services

If you don’t know who is currently responsible for your emergency fuel services, you are probably not working with the right emergency fuel services company. In fact, you may not have an emergency fuel services company at all. Make no mistake, if disaster should strike, the only way to be sure you will have enough fuel to power your generator through the crisis is to have an emergency fuel plan in place.
