Dive The World is proud to be a Business Partner of DAN Asia-Pacific. The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a global network of not-for-profit, member-based, dive safety organisations working for the safety of all divers through education, research and training. DAN and Dive The World therefore share the common goal of ensuring you have a fun, fulfilling and safe diving experience.
DAN Asia-Pacific provides Worldwide Emergency Evacuation Coverage and optional Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance Services for Members. In addition the organisation is responsible for funding and/or manning 24-hour diving emergency hotlines throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
DAN Asia-Pacific is a part of the International DAN Federation of Dive Safety Organisations with worldwide membership presently exceeding 300,000.
Wherever members live or dive around the world, they have peace of mind knowing that DAN is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in the event of an accident/illness.
It’s all about being prepared for unexpected diving accidents and illnesses, and having a reputable organisation to call that specialises in helping sick and injured divers all over the world, that will be able to co-ordinate a rescue effort and, should we need it, cover the costs associated with an evacuation or chamber/hospital treatment.
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.
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.
