DiversAlertNetwork.org – Divers Helping Divers
Divers Alert Network, most known as DAN, is a nonprofit medical and research organization dedicated to the safety and health of recreational scuba divers. Associated with Duke University Medical Center, DAN is supported by the largest association of recreational divers in the world.
With over 28 years of experience protecting scuba divers, this organization represents a lifeline for the scuba industry, since it operates diving’s only 24-hour emergency hotline, which is a lifesaving service for injured divers. Additionally, DAN operates a diving medical information line, conducts vital diving medical research, and develops and provides a number of educational programs for everyone from beginning divers to medical professionals. Through Diversalertnetwork.org visitors can get more information about the institution and its commitment, as well as access plenty of educational material related to diving.
