Proudly Serving the Communities of Hamilton Township Since 1927

Township of Hamilton Underwater Search & Recovery

We are a dedicated volunteer water resource team. The team is a nonprofit, volunteer group of dedicated individuals. This unit has been in existence for more than two decades, and has for many years been under the direction of Township of Hamilton Rescue.


With the support of Hamilton Township officials, the team has upgraded equipment and training to a level we can all be proud of. We also assist neighboring counties and communities as needed.


We work closely with all Fire, EMS and Police Departments in Atlantic County to coordinate efforts for rescue or recovery of a victim.


Our mission is to provide the Township of Hamilton and its surrounding areas with professional surface ice and cold water rescue as well as underwater rescue and recovery. This includes, but is not limited to, victims of surface ice and cold water accidents, drowning victims, and evidence recovery for law enforcement.
