Our History

For years missing persons in Warren County New Jersey depended on the local police, ambulance, fire, and road departments for help and assistance. In November of 2007, recognizing a need for a highly trained and specialized unit, several K9 trainers began discussing the development of a formal search team. On April 9, 2008 the Search and Rescue Teams of Warren County (Station 24) was founded with 16 members from a variety of backgrounds including EMS, Fire, Police, Nursing, and the Military. Since then,  SARTWC has assisted in search operations across the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York. Our dedicated volunteers continue to commit themselves to the training it takes to quickly and efficiently find a person who is lost.



The mission of the Search and Rescue Teams of Warren County (SARTWC) is to provide professional nationally trained and certified search and rescue volunteers to law enforcement and OEM (Office of Emergency Management) agencies and work collaboratively in searches, recoveries, and rescues of persons who are missing. The SARTWC will also provide community outreach through education and will work cooperatively with other agencies so “that others may live”.
