On September 10, members of the Cochran Oil family put their personal lives aside and headed to Florida to do their part to assist with Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
Five of our trucks and crews were sent to assist a local petroleum delivery company which specializes in emergency response, in areas of Florida affected by Hurricane Irma. Approximately 6.5 million people were without power after Hurricane Irma’s landfall, making Cochran Oil’s emergency fuel deliveries critical to hurricane relief efforts in Florida.
“Fuel is a necessity for first responders, military and other agencies to begin the relief and restoration of areas affected by Irma. Our experienced team is prepared to respond at a moment’s notice,” says Tom Cochran, owner of Cochran Oil. “All of our team members know exactly what to do and we have drivers on standby prepared to deploy when called upon by our nation.”
We at Cochran Oil couldn’t be prouder of these fine gentlemen. They represent the absolute pinnacle of our company’s core values. We wish them good luck with their work and a speedy and safe return.
