On Dec. 10, tornadoes ripped across six U.S. states, leaving a path of devastation. One of the areas hardest hit by the storms was western Kentucky, where Fluor is supporting the U.S. Department of Energy at the Paducah Site. The site was not damaged, but the homes of some Four Rivers Nuclear Partnership (FRNP) employees, of which Fluor is a member company, were destroyed. To aid in the recovery, the Fluor Foundation donated to the United Way of Kentucky's Tornado Fund to support local relief efforts. Fluor employees were also encouraged to give to the American Red Cross Southern and Midwest Tornadoes fund with every contribution receiving a 25 percent Fluor match.
Less than a week after the tornados in the United States, Super Typhoon Rai (Odette) made landfall at a force equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. Almost 400 lives were lost, and more than 570,000 people were displaced according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council in the Philippines.
Fluor made a contribution to the Philippine Business for Social Progress, a business-led non-government organization that partners with companies on social investment and philanthropy. Fluor also matched employee contributions at 25 percent.
