Equipment, a CASE Construction Equipment dealer with locations in
southern Georgia, Enterprise, Alabama, and portions of the
Florida panhandle, has donated
equipment and support for Team Rubicon's recent tornado disaster
response and recovery efforts in Selma,
On January 12, 2023, multiple
tornadoes hit the Southeastern United
States. One of which was a category F3 tornado that touched
down in Selma, Alabama — a city
that was still recovering from Hurricane Zeta, and the tornadoes of
2021. The storm hit the city hard, leaving vehicles overturned in
the streets, homes destroyed, and lives lost. Team Rubicon, a veteran-led volunteer humanitarian
organization, having already deployed to Selma in recent years on a multi-year
rebuilding program, knew that it was time for action.
Tidewater Equipment provided three CASE TV370 compact track
loaders, equipped with buckets and root grapple attachments to help
Team Rubicon with the intense cleanup operation that took place
between January 23 and March 10,
2023. The machines and attachments were generously extended
by Tidewater Equipment to ensure that Team Rubicon had the support
needed to complete their mission.
"As a company with locations and customers throughout the
southeastern Unites States, we understand the realities that
catastrophic weather can bring," said Kevin

operation and to support their local community.
"Our partnership with CASE allows us to provide the best
equipment to our customers, and to those in need during disaster
relief efforts. We appreciate the opportunity to support Team
Rubicon and their efforts to rebuild communities impacted by this
terrible storm system," said Pittman.

relief efforts during hurricane season. With the recent extreme
weather and tornadoes that have impacted the South, it is vital to

and CASE to help support those in need.
