Thank You, Team Rubicon!

Team Rubicon has come to help backfill at a critical junction, literally. Maryland Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (MD VOAD) members, Anne Arundel – Annapolis Community Emergency Response Team (AAACERT) and Team Rubicon have teamed up to support pedestrian and traffic safety at the Maryland Live! Casino vaccination site in Hanover, Anne Arundel County.

With AAACERT’s resources stretched thin helping across the county, Anne Arundel County OEM reached out to MD VOAD via MEMA for additional support, and Team Rubicon stepped up. After a one-day orientation and transition, Team Rubicon has taken a primary role, with AAACERT supporting as needed. Helping for the greater good. Isn’t that what’s it’s all about?

MDVOAD members help with traffic control.
