(Victor Valley)– Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
Team Rubicon Engages Veterans.
Thousands of US military veterans, many returning home after fighting a decade of war, find a renewed sense of purpose, community, and identity while using their skills with Team Rubicon.
Team Rubicon Pioneered the Concept of Veteran Focused Disaster Response.
In the immediate aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, Team Rubicon’s military veterans realized the simple truth that natural disasters present many of the same problems that confront troops in Iraq and Afghanistan: unstable populations, limited resources, and uncertain information. The skills cultivated on those same battlefields – emergency medicine, risk assessment and mitigation, teamwork and decisive leadership – are invaluable in disaster zones.
Team Rubicon Has Dual Impact.
Is it a disaster response organization? A veteran-focused enterprise? The truth is it’s both. Team Rubicon is the only disaster response organization that repurposes the skills of military veterans while providing them an opportunity to continue their service. For many veterans, this continued service provides the elements of Purpose and Community that often are difficult to find after taking off the uniform. These intangibles are extremely helpful in creating a successful transition from military to civilian life.
