About Divers Alert Network (DAN)
Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit medical, education and research organization dedicated to the safety and health of scuba divers and is associated with the diving and hyperbaric medical centers at the University of California at San Diego and University of Pennsylvania.
Founded in 1980, DAN has served as a lifeline for the scuba industry by operating diving's only 24-hour emergency hotline, 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.
Divers Alert Network is supported by membership dues and donations. In return, members receive a number of important benefits including $100,000 emergency medical evacuation assistance, DAN educational publications, a subscription to Alert Diver magazine, and access to diving's first and foremost accident insurance coverage.
