Summer of 2016 Team Rubicon USA, Case Equipment, Blight Busters Detroit, and over 100 veterans and volunteers came together in Detroit for Department of Interior and TR certifications in ICS volunteer management, Chain Saw safety and Heavy Equipment Operations and Debris removal.

This project lasted a week with over $250,000 in debris removal costs avoided by using nationally certified training programs in stead of a paid contractor.

With our Veterans Green Village Training Program we intend to duplicate this training and community service model full time with veterans, first responders and community service volunteers who are willing to become certified and operational within the ICS Framework of national disaster response.
