Team Rubicon

Case Construction Equipment dealer Diamond Equipment is currently supporting Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization, in numerous operations throughout the state of Tennessee after a series of tornadoes and heavy storms moved through the region in March and April.

Case Construction Equipment dealer Century Equipment donated use of a Case TV380 compact track loader and CX26C mini-excavator to Team Rubicon for major debris-clearing in La Plata County, Colo. The Team Rubicon effort, which saw the Case equipment move debris, including large rocks, earth and parts of 66 trees, was in response to heavy flooding and landslides in 2018 following the 416 wildfire that burned 55,000 acres in southwest Colorado.

Case Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg supported Team Rubicon's second wave of response to severe storms that originally hit the area in July 2019, including five tornadoes, that caused severe damage across Langlade and Oconto Counties in northeast Wisconsin.

Case Construction Equipment and Tidewater Equipment supported Team Rubicon in a public service project and equipment training exercise at Camp Martha Johnson, a Girl Scout camp in Lizella, Ga. The training provided Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators/volunteers with valuable stick time and resulted in the complete demolition and removal of four obsolete structures on the site, as well as the cleanup and removal of past storm debris.

Case Construction Equipment dealer Miller-Bradford & Risberg provided Team Rubicon with a pair of compact track loaders to complete community service projects, multi-agency training drills and operator training during the Patriot North ‘19 event.

Case Construction Equipment and Southeastern Equipment supported Team Rubicon in its efforts to help the Dayton, Ohio, community recover from the destruction of the EF4 Tornado that caused extensive damage across multiple swaths of the city.

Case Construction Equipment dealer ASCO recently provided a TR310 compact track loader and CX130D excavator to disaster recovery nonprofits Team Rubicon and project leader SBP.
