Team Rubicon Volunteers Mobilize

In the wake of severe weather and torrential floods across the country, Team Rubicon volunteers are mounting responses in multiple communities. Here’s a glimpse of where our team is gearing up to serve.



Region V has been on the ground on Operation Flag City in Findlay, Ohio after two flooding events affected 45,000 residents. Volunteers are assisting residents by conducting damage assessments as well as providing muck out services.


We’re spinning up Operation Fox Yeah in Lake and McHenry Counties, IL, after a slow moving series of storms passed through Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois.


Volunteers deployed on Operation Fox Yeah will also serve residents affected by extreme flooding in Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth Counties, Wisconsin. Our team will conduct debris removal, muck out services, light demolition, chainsaw operations, and spontaneous volunteer management for the affected community.

This weekend, Region I will kick off Operation Stone Face in Conway, NH. Volunteers will aid in muck out operations to support residents affected by flooding.


Region IX is currently monitoring the Grade Fire in Mendocino County, CA and the Detwiler Fire in Mariposa County, CA. Volunteers are poised and ready to serve affected residents.


Region IX is also monitoring the Roach Fire in Pinal County, Arizona. The fire has destroyed five homes, nine other structures, and has consumed an estimated 1,200 acres.

A former U.S. Army infantry captain and Iraq veteran, Dennis Clancey joined Team Rubicon as a volunteer in 2014, responding to the 2015 Nepal earthquakes and Texas floods. In September 2015, he joined the organization full-time as the Deputy Director in charge of global disaster response.
