DAN Launches Fall 2018 Giving Campaign

The Divers Alert Network has launched its year-end giving campaign in support of a global culture of dive safety, calling for donations to the DAN Foundation.

Through education, grants, programs and resources, DAN provides lifesaving assistance and crucial information to divers, medical facilities and dive professionals around the world.

Donations will support the DAN Emergency Hotline, the only service that provides expert 24/7 emergency medical assistance to divers, as well as the DAN Oxygen and AED Grant programs, which provide necessary emergency equipment to dive professionals in need.

Additionally, the foundation supports DAN’s Recompression Chamber Assistance Program (RCAP), through which the organization works to ensure quality and safe hyperbaric care is available to injured divers wherever they may be. DAN’s research has revolutionized the way the world dives, establishing industry standards and procedures that keep so many divers returning from their dives injury- and accident-free. It also receives its funding from the DAN Foundation.

Thousands of divers have relied on DAN’s services, grants, programs and research for their well-being. Giving is more than a donation, it’s an investment in the future of diving. And it’s an investment that saves lives. For more information, or to give today, visit
