CASE Construction Equipment and heavy equipment dealer Titan Machinery donated the use of skid steers and compact track loaders for wildfire cleanup in Costilla County, Colo., this summer as part of Team Rubicon’s Operation Freedom Fire.
The Spring Creek Fire spread to more than 100,000+ acres, and was the third-largest wildfire in Colorado history. Seventy Team Rubicon volunteers logged almost 4,000 service hours and saved the local community an estimated $115,000 in cleanup efforts.
“It’s been a particularly active wildfire season for Team Rubicon this year, and our dealers continue to step up to support the efforts and help these communities move back toward rebuilding,” said Michel Marchand, vice president – North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “The heavy equipment program with Team Rubicon continues to grow and evolve, and these efforts are invaluable to communities hit hard by disaster.”
