After the storm: NYC fleets and the post-Hurricane Sandy fuels crisis

What's it like for fleets following a disaster like Hurricane Sandy in 2012? Pray you never find out — but certainly don't wait till an emergency happens to think about preparedness. For New York City's Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), which manages the nation's largest municipal fleet, there were a lot of lessons learned particularly about fueling needs. 

DCAS shared with Fleet Owner its efforts post-Sandy in a major fleet resiliency improvement program. And the folks at DCAS also sent some photos from the days and weeks following the storm and what it took to get fuel where it was needed for the fleet and others necessary to the recovery. Check out our story on emergency preparedness — and consider what your fleet can do now to help keep up and running when disaster strikes.
