Diver IDentification Systems
Free to DAN Industry Partners, the Diver IDentification System (DIDS) ensures that dive leaders will always know that all divers have returned safely from their dives. The improved system helps divemasters track their divers at all open-water sites and on charter boats.
Pre-dive, the dive leader assigns each diver an individually numbered DIDS tag. Before diving, the diver removes the tag and clips it to his or her BCD. After the dive, the diver unclips the tag and returns it to the board. The DID System combined with another diver roll call procedure will help ensure that no diver will be left in the water.
The Diver Identification System is funded by DAN Donors. Please consider joining principal backer The Living Seas at Walt Disney World by supporting this program. You may give online or contact DAN Development at 1-800-446-2671 ext. 444.
