NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — When disaster strikes – be it a hurricane, earthquake or tornado, the men and women of Team Rubicon are often the first responders.

It’s an organization of volunteers, mostly military veterans, who put their elite skills to use to help those in immediate need of help.

William McNulty and Matt Pelak from Team Rubicon joined The Couch on Thursday.
