NJ-TF1 Recognizes Members for 20 Years of Service
During the New Jersey Task Force One (NJ-TF1) Annual Team Meeting, a moment was taken to recognize and thank 33 members for 20 years of dedicated service to the task force. These members have served the citizens of New Jersey as well as those in need throughout the country. Most recently they deployed to Texas in response to Hurricane Harvey and Florida in response to Hurricane Irma. What makes this even more remarkable is that they are all founding members of NJ-TF1.
