Event Description

Blight Busters volunteers are encouraged to participate as walk on volunteers to be managed by Team Rubicon members in training. You will be assigned to a strike team and a strike team leader will give you safety gear and any information about the project you will be working on.

Qualifications Information and registration is on TEAM RUBICON'S WEBSITE

We train like we fight, so when we’re not in the field, we head to the batting cage to perfect our swing. Team Rubicon is partnering with Blight Busters Detroit to help clean up the Brightmoor neighborhood of Detroit. This training opportunity on steroids is called MOBEX (Mobilization Exercise) Motor City and will be held May 11-16. Members will clear multiple city blocks of debris and urban blight while learning how to conduct damage assessments, safe chainsaw operations, heavy equipment operations, and more.

Region V is hosting and you’re invited. Training, lodging, meals, and a Tigers game are covered. All you have to do is get there. Check out the opportunities below:
