Refueling Readiness


The Wisconsin Refueling Readiness Plan series of grant programs were designed to address the concern of fueling emergency vehicles during any number of natural or man-made disaster scenarios, and to evolve in scale and scope to address other emergent issues. The program is part of its ongoing coordination of energy assurance planning and exercise activities with key state and federal agencies as well as Tribal and county emergency managers. This work has identified the need for proactive resilience efforts. 

The petroleum shortage contingency planning process, which included private companies, state and federal agencies, and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), has determined that Wisconsin should ensure there are reliable fueling stations where emergency vehicles can obtain diesel fuel or gasoline. These locations are known as fueling points of distribution, or F-PODs.
