Divers Alert Network

The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is the diving industry's largest association dedicated to scuba diving safety. Serving scuba divers for more than 30 years, DAN provides emergency assistance, medical information resources, educational opportunities and more. Whether you are a new diver or are a veteran of the sport, DAN is here for you.

DAN Coverage

DAN provides coverage to help sick or injured divers. There are two components: DAN Membership providing Worldwide Emergency Evacuation Coverage, and DAN Dive Injury Insurance, covering treatment costs associated with a covered diving incident.

Diver Safety Resources

One of DAN's best-known resources is the Emergency Hotlines that are available 24-hours, 7-days a week to help scuba divers in need. DAN also offers a number of non-emergency resources, including DAN Doc, a dedicated diving medical issues website.


Why is it so important that as Divers we are protected with DAN Membership & Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance?
It’s all about being prepared for the unexpected, namely dive accidents and illnesses. It’s essential that divers have a reputable organisation to call that will be able to co-ordinate a rescue effort and get them to the most appropriate treatment for their injury or illness. And then there is the issue of cost. DAN protection ensures the diver will not be lumbered with the burden of a potentially hefty invoice in the event of an accident or illness.

An Example
Recently DAN was involved in the evacuation of a paralysed diver from the Solomon Islands to Australia. The evacuation cost was around AUD$90,000 (as an aircraft had to be sourced from far away). In addition, the treatment costs were in excess of US$30,000, plus on-going expenses.

The essence of DAN Membership & Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance is about being prepared. DAN offers members peace-of-mind, which comes from knowing they have the experts in diver accident management to call in the event of a diving accident or illness.

TESTIMONI 

"We recommend DAN Membership to our clients travelling to dive destinations throughout the South Pacific and beyond. As DAN Members, our clients travel with the reassurance of knowing if they encounter a diving related incident while travelling, they will receive advice and assistance from an Organisation whose existence is for Divers and has an understanding of the associated risks, medical symptoms and the importance of timely evacuation and medical treatment." - Mike Budden, Dive Fish Snow Travel

 

"I've dived for 10 years and completed 680 dives and I never thought I would have DCI, but I did. Thanks to DAN I was able to recover very well. I hope you are covered by DAN, so you too will have someone to count on in the very possible event of a scuba diving accident. DAN was of great help from the moment they received the call about my condition; their professionalism and care was so efficient and touching." - Seung Hee, Korea

 

"We recommend with confidence DAN coverage for our diving guests: being in a remote location we need emergencies, however rare, to be handled by experts. DAN gives divers, and us, peace of mind knowing that they will be in safe and expert hands if an emergency arises. Taking out DAN membership is quick & easy for divers to organise and offers great value for money for 12 month coverage." - Lee Fewster, UEPI Island Resort
