Case, Sonsray Machinery provide Team Rubicon with equipment for California wildfire response
Case Construction Equipment and have donated the use of a CX80C excavator to Team Rubicon for Operation Wind River, a response to the wildfires that burned more than 23,000 acres between Orange and Riverside Counties in California.
Operation Wind River assisted residents in the Robin Hood Oaks community, located in Lake Elsinore, California. After the wildfire was contained in mid-September, the community experienced heavy rainfall leading to mudslides that filled with decomposed granite and sand. Additional rain caused flooding that severely damaged three homes.
The operation cleared debris from the creek to alleviate ongoing flood risks and further damage to homes in the area. The Case CX80C was the primary tool for clearing and removing debris.
"Supporting Team Rubicon and projects like Operation Wind River is a great way for Case and our dealers like Sonsray Machinery to help the communities we serve," said Michel Marchand, vice president - North America, Case Construction Equipment.
