Technical Rescue Team

The Brick Township Technical Rescue Team is a group of highly trained and motivated volunteer members of all three fire districts of the Brick Township Fire Department. The concept for the team started in 1995 with the Joint Board of Fire Commissioners addressing the mandates of the State of New Jersey to provide rescue capabilities for a confined space incident. 

The team went into service in early 1996 after training to the technician level for confined space, and has since acquired suitable apparatus and required equipment. The team has continued its training by adding high/low angle rope rescue, trench rescue, and basic building collapse rescue training to its response capabilities, and is available to respond anywhere in Ocean County to assist at any confined space, high/low angle rope rescue, trench collapse or building collapse incident.
