The MISSION of the Township of West Milford
Search and Rescue (SAR) Team is:



The Township of West Milford Search and Rescue Team was established in 1996 by Fire Marshal Michael Woch and Chief of Police James Breslin. Recognizing a need in a rural area where hunters, hikers, and children often became disoriented and lost, they recruited local Volunteer Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Personnel and Police Officers to form this multi-agency team. Members were required to successfully pass several nationally accredited courses. Since then, the members have attended numerous courses to further their Search and Rescue techniques. 

Michael Woch served as the director of Search and Rescue from 1996 to mid 2003.

 Paul Reilly is the present Director of Search and Rescue.
