Team Rubicon, led by East Coast Coordinator Matt Pelak, has activated a hybrid team of veterans and firefighters to respond to the disaster in Alabama. The team will focus entirely on clean up efforts and will have no medical mandate for its mission. The effort is part of a broader initiative to engage returning veterans in disaster relief projects across the country. TR is in the early stages of pioneering this new initiative to respond domestically to natural disasters. This initiative, called Team Rubicon Transition, will unite the skills of veterans with first responders during these types of disasters.
