New Jersey Task Force 1
New Jersey Task Force 1, is one of 28 federal FEMA Urban Search and Rescue teams in the country. We were brought into the federal system in September of 2016, and are extremely proud and honored to have been adopted into the system with the 27 other highly skilled and trained teams throughout the country.
Our team has been in existence since 1996 as a state resource and still today we maintain that state status. As a state team we operate under the authority of the New Jersey State Police, Homeland Security Branch, Office of Emergency Management.
