Giveaway: Christopher Meloni at Duracell Power Forward Fleet Disaster Relief Event CLOSED #PowerForward
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. For communities dealing with life after a natural disaster, The Duracell Power Forward program can really make a difference.

Note: I was invited as media to this event and Duracell is providing the prize for this giveaway. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
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.
