Diving Organisations

Divers Alert Network

The Divers Alert Network began life as an organisation in 1980, having been assisted by NOAA in getting the funding necessary. The fundimental goal then and now is diver emergency assistance.

Starting out as a concept; a phone call to the DAN network would initiate diving medical assistance to a stricken diver. With DAN now offering worldwide coverage for a yearly fee the medical assistance typically amounts to insurance coverage for covering transport and hyperbaric treatment in the event of a DCI incident.

For those working in the recreational diving industry it can be a wise choice when diving day in day out.
