Hurricane Preparedness

Is your business prepared?

In August of 2003, the largest blackout in U.S. history left over 50 million people without power. In September of that same year, Hurricane Isabel roared ashore knocking out power to over 2.5 million people. A single extended power outage can be a devastating blow to a business, yet most businesses today are not equipped to function under such circumstances. Living in the state ranked as the U.S. lightening capitol, we are all too aware at how quickly a natural disaster can leave us crippled without power. Careful pre-planning is the key to successfully reducing risk to your business caused by power interruption.

Jet Age Fuel will guarantee our premium customers fuel delivery in the event of a threat of a hurricane, as long as fuel is still available at the Port of Tampa. Sometimes there are circumstances beyond our control in regards to the availability of fuel to Jet Age Fuel, especially during the event of a hurricane. Due to the chaotic state that our community is typically in during these times of threatened disaster, we recommend to all of our customers to keep their generator tanks topped off, especially during hurricane seasons.

 If you have any further questions or would like to sign up for the hurricane guarantee, give us a call at (727) 441-1706

What would you lose…

How often do you back up the data on your computer system? Most business owners maintain a strict regimen to ensure the protection of their records. Very few, however, stop to think about the power that allows them to access those files, and what they would do in the event of an extended power outage.

The concerns of being without lighting, climate control, alarm systems, computers, refrigeration units and possibly life saving medical equipment, can be all but eliminated by investing in a back up generator. In the best case scenario, these systems are never needed. In the worst case scenario, they allow you to continue to function during an extended outage, which could save your business thousands of dollars in the long run. During times of crisis, Jet Age works round the clock giving top priority to customers in need of emergency fuel to keep their operations running successfully. We proudly serve hospitals, medical centers, churches, restaurants, grocery stores and more
