Clermont County, March 3-9, 2018 – Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization, has launched Operation Delta Queen to support residents of Clermont County following the recent flooding.
Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams to communities affected by disaster.
Team Rubicon will be conducting a Type 5 response in Clermont County to assist with ongoing flooding response and recovery efforts. The response is expected to last six days with about 20 volunteers coming to help out.
Team Rubicon’s volunteers will provide damage assessments and muck out to affected communities in coordination with local and state authorities.
Team Rubicon performs its services at no cost to those affected, thanks to the generosity of donors.
U.S. Marine Corps veterans Jake Wood and William McNulty founded the nonprofit in 2010 following the massive Haiti earthquake. It has grown from eight to over 65,000 volunteers with over 225 operations under its belt.
