On October 4 Foss Maritime announced it has contracted with FEMA to support relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Foss is deploying accommodation vessels to serve as floating hotels, providing safe housing and warm meals for responders.
“We have the ability and the commitment to serve the wide range of needs of hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and are prepared to offer additional services, as needed, to FEMA and other federal agencies throughout all relief efforts,” said Will Roberts, Foss CCO.
“For Foss, this type of project is at the heart of what we do. We are glad to do our part to help the families affected by this devastating disaster by enlisting the skills of our finest operators and providing needed equipment,” he said.
Note: With offices in Houston, Lafayette and New Orleans, we at Liskow & Lewis have first hand appreciation for the resources required to address the impact of a major storm. We congratulate Foss on this endeavor.
