With the FOB up and running in Marseilles, IL, Team Rubicon has fully begun flood recovery operations. TR has been in constant contact with local authorities to ensure TR volunteers are being used in the most efficient way possible.
Team Rubicon has also been using Palantir to create and track work orders in the affected area, and is sharing this information with other relief groups.
Today, volunteers focused on the homes of first responders – this will allow more first responders to go out and help with the ongoing recovery.
A total of 258 work orders have been created so far. TR plans to accomplish at least 75% of the remaining EMS work orders and 50% of the Southern Baptist work orders over the next 245 hours.
It is imperative that we are able to recruit more volunteers for Operation: Prairie Dog. Any Region 5 or Region 7 volunteer within 250 of LaSalle County, IL should register their availability in OrgAction ASAP.
