Resource Distribution

Critical Resource Staging

Critical needs for basics, particularly clean water and fuel, are common to most crisis events (e.g., Katrina, Irene, Charlie, and now, Sandy). We can stage tanker trucks of fuels (gasoline, kerosine, LP) and water with portable "self-powered" pumping stations outside of harms way. In the immediate aftermath of a catastrophy these trucks can be deployed in great number to every major section of a disaster zone to provide residence and businesses with essential fuels to run generators, vehicles, and clean water for consumption. Witnessing the long lines for fuel versus can be replaced with immediate access to plentiful mobile fuel depots for both first responders and the general public.
