The NJIRT is contacted through a 24 hour dispatch
service via individual pagers. The Team can be alerted by any
private citizen or local, state, or Federal agency. Once a page
has been initiated, contact will be established by one of the
Team's Officers. Based on the available information, they will
evaluate the situation, establish a level of urgency, and begin
mobilizing the appropriate resources for the situation. They may
also initiate contact with other area SAR providers who might be
needed as well for the mission.
Team personnel are generally mobilized within 30 minutes of
notification and our "on scene" time is travel dependent.
