Call for veterans to join Op RE:ACT relief efforts
International disaster response organisation Team Rubicon is calling on military veterans to volunteer in the fight against coronavirus. It is currently working with the government to mobilise thousands of former Service personnel.
Former Royal Marine and Team Rubicon CEO, Richard Sharp, says it is looking for veterans aged under 65 to express their interest in helping via Op RE:ACT. If that includes you, you can register to get involved through filling in an online form available on the Team Rubicon website. Eligible volunteers will ’then be tasked into their community around the UK’.
From their HQ at the former RAF Chilmark, the staff of Team Rubicon have already been working hard in the fight against the virus, and veterans who decide to join them during the pandemic will be coordinated from here.
Team Rubicon usually deals with international disasters, but now its focus is very much on home. As each day passes, Team Rubicon say the needs of communities around the UK will increase, but this is an organisation skilled at getting people and resources to where they are most needed in a time of crisis, meaning the UK is in very good hands.
