Sea Bright Fire Rescue Appoints Chad Murphy as Chief of the Department .

The whole lifeguard staff and our rescue team is stoked to see surf rescue technician Murphy take the point man position for the fire department.  Chief Murphy leading the fire department is a best case scenario for the town of Sea Bright.  Chief Murphy  has been a  part or our lifeguard service's  foundation from day one and has been a primary rescue boat  operator and incident commander for 43-88 since the inception of our  Borough's Surf Rescue Team. We can think of no better scenario than to have Chief Murphy at the helm or acting Incident Commander when the ocean snatches a life after hours.  Congrats brother you deserve it!

SBOR has obtained it's 3rd USLA certification

Personal Rescue Water Craft Agency

On December 7th 2019  the United States Lifesaving Association and it's board of directors  certified  SBOR as a Personal Rescue Water Craft Agency. We are part of the first group of  agencies  in the country to be certified in this discipline  of motorized water craft rescue (jet ski). Combined with our USLA Open Water Agency Certification and our USLA Aquatic Rescue Response Team Certification  we are the only municipality and lifeguard service in the country to possess all 3  categories  of national certification.  We have finally made national ocean lifeguard history thanks to the hard work  of our ocean lifeguards and their dedication to the mission. We are also very thankful for the leadership of our department (Don Klein) and the boro council including former Mayor Long, Mr Rooney, and Mr Birdsall as well as our boro administrator Joe Verruni for standing behind our jet ski rescue team which has so far rescued well over a dozen people from  rip currents, assisted numerous boats in distress, recovered one body and prevented hundreds of dangerous incidents and ocean conditions from turning deadly.  Rest assure there is plenty  more rescue work to be done!
