Bridge the Gap: Cutting-Edge Systems in Disaster Response

Commitment by

Team Rubicon

In 2013 Team Rubicon (TR) committed to leveraging new resources in technology and supply chain management as a strategy to scale up operations exponentially from 11,000 to more than 20,000 veteran volunteers within 18 months. The ultimate goal of this scale up is to: 1) improve the response time to a disaster, 2) better equip response teams, and 3) engage more veterans in disaster relief as part of a holistic veteran reintegration model. As a part of this commitment, TR will be partnering with Airlink, Home Depot Foundation, Motorola Solutions, Motorola Solutions Foundation, Everbridge, Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, and Goal Zero. These seven organizations will donate transportation, equipment, communications technologies, solar power, software solutions, and financial support, enabling Team Rubicon to respond to over 20 disasters in the next year as needed.
