The Team is trained in and equipped following public safety diver standards and recovery protocols, and is supplemented by modern technology including sonar array, underwater cameras and communication devices. The Team has extensive monthly training in operations of boats, search/rescue and other equipment.
Safety is our priority! Our divers typically dive individually with two backup divers immediately available, and tethered to a surface support member who directs the dive via underwater communications gear. Depending on the incident that the Team is responding too, multiple boats may be used in a coordinated effort to cover an area that is suitable for sonar and divers.
