Team Rubicon USA (Domestic Team Member Description

Domestic Team Member

A. Position Description

This is the starting point for Team Rubicon volunteers.  Each volunteer is originally identified as a Domestic Team Member (DTM) and can begin the required training program before they are “approved” in our system.  Approval happens on a personal level through our state and regional leadership and can take some time depending on the activity levels in your region.  

This DTM billet will be applied to everyone in our database beginning September 5, 2012.  We will be announcing “international billets” throughout the year, beginning with “Team Leader” and then moving on to other technical and medical billets such as “Rescue Specialist” and “Physician”.  If you think you are capable of filling one of these slots, then sign up for it when the appropriate billet becomes available.  You may sign up for ONE additional international billet.

You are not REQUIRED to finish the training classes listed below before deploying into a domestic mission.  Further, Team Rubicon will not be asking for your completion certificates from these classes.  The classes listed below will give you a BASIC understanding of the Incident Command System (ICS) and will GREATLY help you if/when you are asked to help another organization.  Team Rubicon has worked with FEMA, USAID, and many other large organizations in the past, and familiarity with the  Incident Command System (ICS) has proven to be a benefit.

B. Prerequisite Qualifications:

  1. Domestic Team Members need to maintain a minimal physical fitness level in order to dependably work in a chaotic and resource-limited emergency setting.  That fitness level is up to the DTM to evaluate, but if it becomes an issue while on a mission, the Team Leader reserves the right to dismiss a volunteer from a mission site or to relegate them to a safer alternate duty.

C. Expiration/Renewal:

There is no expiration for this position.
