“We’d like to thank Polaris for their continued support of our mission to help communities impacted by disaster – both in the U.S. and around the world,” said Matt Colvin, Head of Partnerships at Team Rubicon. “These RANGER vehicles will be tremendous force multipliers for our teams in The Bahamas – allowing them to move quicker, access more remote areas, and remove more debris.”
Polaris has deployed new RANGER 1000 vehicles to support the veteran-led disaster response organization to aid their relief efforts following Cat 5 Hurricane Dorian’s hit on the Bahamas. With more than 70,000 people displaced, recovery efforts in the Bahamas have been slowed down by ravaged infrastructure.
To make as much impact as possible, Team Rubicon has launched a two-pronged response operation in Great Abaco and Grand Bahama. The organization deployed its Emergency Medical Team to help stabilize the situation, provide mobile medical care in hard-to-reach and remote areas, and to help monitor for and prevent disease outbreaks.
“When natural disasters strike, Team Rubicon is ready to take action and we are honored to help support their mission,” said Kyle Duea, VP of Marketing Off-Road Vehicles at Polaris. “As the recovery efforts continue, our RANGER vehicles will provide Team Rubicon with transportation to deliver needed support and help communities affected by Hurricane Dorian rebuild.”
Polaris has a history of supporting disaster relief efforts through work with organizations like Team Rubicon, and ongoing partnership with The Salvation Army and the Polaris Rescue & Relief Fleet. To find more information about Team Rubicon’s efforts following Hurricane Dorian, visit:
