CASE Construction Equipment, the global construction machinery brand of CNH Industrial N.V., dealer Sonsray Machinery donated the use of a CASE TV380 compact track loader for a wildland fire and wind damage response operation in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.
Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs is a 2,040-acre park on the north side of Las Vegas. Centered around a group of small natural lakes, this oasis in the Mojave Desert is a popular outdoor recreation spot for travelers and local residents. The easternmost area of the park is a wooded area with established trails which has been plagued with reoccurring wildfires and subsequent damage from windstorms. Team Rubicon deployed a limited-scale disaster response task force as a follow-up to an initial operation that took place in 2018.
“The leftover debris from wildfires and subsequent wind damage in the area had made sections of the trail system either unsafe or inaccessible to park visitors,” says Alex Roth of Team Rubicon. “This four-day operation, comprised of Team Rubicon volunteers, equipment operators and support personnel, was a follow-up to our initial cleanup operation in 2018, and has drastically improved trail conditions, and helped mitigate potential fires in the future. The CASE equipment and support from Sonsray Machinery helped make this operation a success.”
