The Atlantic Strike Team is located on twelve plus acres on U.S. Army Fort Dix which became part of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on October 1, 2009. All five military services, as well as several agencies, are on the Joint Base. The Atlantic Strike Team facilities consist of two large buildings pictured above.  Building #5614 is dedicated to DC1 Perry a former Strike Team Diver, is home to the Logistics Department, Training Department along with “O” Country.   Building #6770 is dedicated to Lieutenant Commander Mark Lavache and is our main building for equipment storage and where various shops are located. Our facilities are maintained by a civilian facilities manager.

The Atlantic Strike Team is fortunate to be supported by the Coast Guard Auxiliary.  These dedicated professionals help staff our Incident Response Center and are valued members of our team.
