CASE, McKeel Equipment Support Team Rubicon in Kentucky Tornado Cleanup
CASE Construction Equipment, a brand of CNH Industrial and local CASE dealer McKeel Equipment (headquartered in Paducah, Kentucky) are supporting Team Rubicon in its efforts to aid communities affected by tornadoes that hit Kentucky in December 2021. Team Rubicon has been working throughout the state since the tornadoes passed, and has four heavy equipment teams deployed along with 80+ volunteers in Mayfield and Dawson Springs, Kentucky. The organization just wrapped its operations in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The initial priority for the organization at the request of county emergency managers was route clearance and removing debris from properties with compact track loaders and grapple buckets, including equipment provided by CASE and McKeel Equipment. Team Rubicon plans on staying in the area into February to continue with debris removal, demolition work, tree removal, and other volunteer work to benefit local residents.
“Team Rubicon has responded with a massive wave of volunteers and resources to help these communities to begin the rebuilding process,” says Terry Dolan, vice president — North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “Our partners at McKeel have felt the impact of these storms firsthand, and we’re proud to work together to assist Team Rubicon in cleanup efforts that provide homeowners relief and support as the recovery continues.”
