Response Hub Locations
The community of Adak Alaska is located 1,200 miles southwest of Anchorage, near the end of the Aleutian chain (51.86441 N, 176.63188 W). Once the site of an Army and Naval base, Adak boasts extensive infrastructure in an extremely remote location. Chadux's response equipment is stored at one of the old military warehouses near the waterfront.
OUR NAME CHADUX
The word “chadux” is derived from the Aleut word for whale blubber. Over time, the word evolved to refer to fuel, and presently it refers to oil.
