TEAM RUBICONLos Angeles, California
Team Rubicon is a disaster relief organization that unites the skills and experience of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
Team Rubicon is a veteran-led disaster relief organization. Many veterans, after fighting over a decade of war, are returning home and finding it difficult to transition from military to civilian life. Meanwhile, there is a definite gap in traditional disaster relief and a tangible need for experienced volunteers.
Team Rubicon pairs the skills and experiences that veterans learned in the military (things like emergency medicine, risk mitigation, decisive leadership, small-unit tactics) with first-responders and disaster relief professionals. We send these teams across the United States and the world, helping communities recover from natural disasters or humanitarian crises.
