Emergency Resources: Fuel Supply and Supply Chain Management Webinar (9/30/2020)…Two Sessions at 10am and 1pm

September 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

Fuel Supply and Supply Chain Management Webinar (9/30/2020)

One of the most requested resources for water & wastewater systems during regional emergencies is fuel for generators. During Hurricane Sandy in 2012, New Jersey water & wastewater systems were frantically searching for fuel for their generators due to the high demand from both the public and private sector. In response to this and other emergencies, PA DEP is working on a state plan to provide streamlined access to emergency fuel for critical infrastructure. The plan is known as ENAP (Emergency Assistance Plan) and is part of our state’s Petroleum Shortage Response Plan. If you missed the EPA/PaWARN webinar on this important plan, you now have a second chance to participate (see registration link below) thanks to Carol Adams (ALCOSAN), who serves as a PaWARN Board Member and Brian Moore (DEP), who is the webinar presenter.

Registration is now open!

Discussion topics will include:

When the power is out at your facility are you sure your fuel delivery company can fill your generator? What do they do when they don’t have power? Can you pay for fuel after hours? What happens when the fuel delivery companies don’t have fuel?

This webinar will provide a 10000’ overview of the petroleum industry and provide questions to ask your fuel delivery companies to ensure they are able to supply you during an emergency as well as how to get assistance if they can’t. We will also talk about existing resources available to develop a liquid fuels emergency plan and efforts underway to coordinate with local and county governments on liquid fuels preparedness.

  • An overview of COVID-19 information sharing surrounding energy assurance;
  • DEP Energy Programs Office introduction with existing resources available;
  • Current initiatives with local and county governments underway to ensure fuel availability during emergencies ;
  • Best practices as related by the petroleum industry to make sure you don’t run out of fuel;
  • Planning tools and resources will be provided to all attendees;
  • Be prepared to ask the questions that keep you up at night;


Templates, guides and resources will be shared with webinar attendees.
