The state of Wisconsin has begun an initiative to ensure petroleum supplies are available in the event of severe natural disasters. Wisconsin Emergency Management and the Department of Administration will provide assistance to petroleum marketers and municipal and county fleet operations in small wiring projects that enable their facilities to accept a generator in an emergency.

"This project has a goal of getting one or two fueling facilities in every county wired for emergency generators, so there is a reliable source of fuel in the event of widespread power outages," said Gov. Scott Walker in a release. "We are partnering with the private sector on this important infrastructure investment to provide efficient and effective fuel security all across our state."

The initiative is one element of Wisconsin Emergency Management’s energy security program for the state.

In April, the Department of Administration issued application materials for convenience stores, truck stops, and municipal fleets that are interested in participating in the voluntary program.

Municipal fleet managers can visit the state's website to download application materials and instructions for participating in the program.
