Is Your Station Prepared?

Consider Your Fuel Needs Now!



Dear ABA Members,

As you are aware, meteorologists have predicted an active Hurricane season in 2020. Thankfully, we don't expect that Arkansas to be directly impacted, but there will likely be indirect impacts to various regions of the country.

Particularly of concern is damage to oil refineries and fuel manufacturing. Should extensive damage occur, pipeline supplies could become limited. You may recall that we experienced significant fuel supply chain disruptions fifteen years ago in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

At this time, we would like to take the opportunity to remind you — as news gathering organizations—to take a few minutes today to review your operational needs. This would include ensuring your vehicles have fuel, your generators are full, and perhaps that you consider whether to pre-buy additional fuel. It is our goal to ensure you are prepared to continue your operations with little interference during this time.

We know you join us in keeping our gulf state counterpoints in our thoughts.

Thank you.
