Team Rubicon provides the following capabilities and services to affected communities:
Give me a cup of leadership (coffee that is) and we’ll make sure we have the largest impact possible with the resources available during this disaster response.
Something bad happened – but how bad was it? We get there fast to digitally analyze and record the impact on the homeowner, on the community, and on the state.
All the bad news collected is mapped and provided as public information to help a community recover – We track everything we do too, this helps reduce the community's burden in recovery grants.
There’s a lot of stuff where it doesn’t belong, we help get things back to normal.
To prepare and reduce the impact of disasters, we get to work before disaster strikes – fire breaks, potential flood debris clearing, if it limits the impact of a disaster, name it and we’ll get it done.
When things get ugly, one of the hardest parts is prepping for the skilled labor to come in and make it pretty – we’re free, fast, and do great work.
A lot of people want to help, we help communities make all those good people more organized.
Team Rubicon deploys equipped with all the resources required to provide the capabilities above including:
– Personal protective equipment
– Hand tools
– Data analysis and mapping suites (mobile and static platforms)
– Sawyer teams
All incident management personnel are trained in the application of Incident Command System (ICS) in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS). Volunteers are trained in the basics of ICS. Team Rubicon deploys as a self-sustaining unit.
