The destructive power of a natural disaster can happen unexpected and quickly, leaving communities of people to deal with the after math including dislocation from home and a loss of power for basic needs.

Christopher Meloni, who partnered with Duracell to spread awareness about the program's expansion, shared during an event that Duracell is expanding its fleet and joining forces with The Weather Channel and Ready.gov to reach more people, more quickly during devastating storms.

Since 2011, The Duracell Power Forward program has been donating batteries to those affected by natural disaster. But to help more communities affected by a natural disaster, they've added new vehicles and hubs in New Orleans, San Francisco, and St. Louis.

The fleet’s goal is to reach any storm site in the continental U.S. and provide free batteries, WiFi and mobile charging and power relief within 24 hours after a natural disaster.

“Being in the battery business, we know all too well when a natural disaster strikes, power fails and communities aren't always prepared,” said Jeff Jarrett, Marketing Director for Duracell. “Duracell believes a little power goes a long way in reviving hope, so we have committed to expanding our fleet and relief efforts.”

During the event, I had the chance to view the different vehicles in the fleet. The new expanded Duracell Power Forward fleet include 5 custom-made vehicles designed for the specific needs of each region and types of disasters it will service. Each truck is fully stock with different supplies to help their communities.

  11. Oh my goodness, it's Elliot Stabler! On a serious note, it's great to see him again, especially when he has partnered with a great brand for a great cause.

    We have cut down on the amount of things we use batteries for, but we always have them stashed away with our flashlight in case of emergencies. Since we live in a rural area where loss of power is common with thunderstorms and snowstorms, knowing our flashlight in there and has batteries is a must.
