Broco Energy Wins 4-year Emergency Fuel Contract 

Broco Energy, Emergency Fuel

Broco Energy Haverhill, MA August 19, 2020
In recent months, the MEMA (Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency) accepted bids from companies eager to earn the privilege of providing Emergency Fuel support to MEMA during emergency events. Broco Energy received notification Friday, August 14, 2020, that they had been awarded the 4-year contract for Emergency Fuel delivery and logistic services.
Broco Energy will work alongside MEMA and other state agencies to provide emergency assistance to communities impacted by natural disasters through its “Priority One” Emergency Fuel Division. Broco Energy’s emergency response teams had previous performances including our first prime contractor role being the Columbia Gas explosions in the Merrimack Valley in 2018. Other responses included national deployments to provide emergency fuel services to Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Florence, and Hurricane Michael.
“Our team takes this as a great honor to serve our home state and look forward to being Massachusetts go-to company for any type of emergency that arises” said Robert Brown, President of Broco Energy. 
Broco Energy’s performance on the Merrimack Valley gas explosions earned them the 2019 SBA Veteran-Owned Business of the Year Award. Broco Energy was tasked with managing up to 500 generators 24/7 for 110 days consecutively.

Emergency response is in the Brown brothers’ blood.

Both military men and fire­fighters, Bob Brown of Andover and his brother Shane of Stoneham are sending trucks from their family-owned oil company to the Carolinas filled with fuel ahead of Hurricane Florence.

Bob has seen firsthand the devastation left behind by hurricanes. He was serving in Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 7, stationed in Gulfport, Miss., when Hurricane Katrina made landfall in 2005.

“I saw how important fuel is in an emergency like that,” Bob said. “You don’t realize how important fuel is — having a steady flow of fuel to support and continue the rescue operation. … I’ve always been drawn to emergency response and providing for emergency situations like that.”

When the Browns heard about Hurricane Florence, they got eight of their trucks prepped for hauling, filled them with gas and diesel fuel and have four now en route to the Carolinas in coordination with FEMA. Another four are ready to go if they are called on.

Emergency, FEMA, Broco Energy

Shane, a Cambridge firefighter, also serves as a U.S. Army Reserve firefighter, but helped his brother organize the initiative.

“When something like this comes up, when people need help and you can do it, it’s really a no-brainer,” Shane said. “At the end of the day we can hang up our hat and know we made a difference.”

Last year, they offered up their trucks for hurricanes Harvey and Irma as well.

The fuel trucks are staged around priority facilities, such as hospitals, and when the power goes out they keep those facilities up and running. They also travel with rescue response teams to fuel their vehicles as they move through disaster zones.

FEMA will reimburse operational costs, but the Browns foot the bill for expenses, food, lodging and fuel to and from the site.

“I didn’t even inquire about (reimbursements) last year, I just sent them down to help,” Bob said. “It’s not one of those situations where you say, ‘What’s covered, how much money is it for us to go down,’ the mentality should be, OK, whatever you need, we’ll provide.”
