Team Rubicon Canada – Disaster Response
Across the world, disasters are a part of life. No corner of the globe is spared from severe weather – be it crippling winter storms, catastrophic hurricanes, or unchecked wildfires. When the going gets tough, the speed and effectiveness of a community’s response becomes critical.
Built to serve communities, Team Rubicon Canada has deployed support around the world to provide immediate relief to those impacted by disasters and humanitarian crises. By focusing on underserved or economically challenged communities, Team Rubicon Canada seeks to make the largest possible positive impact.
Team Rubicon Canada aims to help communities begin recovery sooner by leveraging the skills and experiences of military Veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams around the world.
This continued service provides Veterans with three things that may assist them during the transition from military to civilian life:
- A purpose - gained through disaster relief and teamwork
- Community - built by serving communities before, during, and after disasters and crises
- Identity - recognizing the impact they can make while further developing their leadership skills and other opportunities
Members assisted emergency workers in helping clear critical supply routes essential for residents to get supplies as well as lending a hand to local utility companies to get power lines and telecommunication infrastructures working again. They also helped residents remove any hazards on their property that may have been a threat to their safety.
Lockheed Martin Canada is a proud partner of Team Rubicon Canada, helping them fuel their mission to support communities when disaster strikes. We have committed $25,000 in support of Team Rubicon Canada as they continue to make an impact on communities here at home and around the world.
