Even a SMALL donation can make a BIG difference.

With the generous support of our members, Divers Alert Network has been making diving safer for 39 years. Your tax-deductible contribution to The DAN Foundation will promote diver safety and better outcomes for injured divers by supporting:

Since 1980 DAN has operated a 24/7 emergency hotline. This service exists to ensure injured divers get the care they need, and it has been a lifeline for tens of thousands of divers around the world.

Emergency oxygen and trained first aid providers can make a real difference in dive accidents; we continually improve our first aid training programs and each year give away dozens of oxygen units to dive operators and other organizations in need.

Every year we hold continuing medical education courses for doctors and other medical professionals to ensure they're prepared to treat injured divers, and through our Recompression Chamber Assistance Program (RCAP), we provide training and safety assessments at hyperbaric chambers worldwide.

DAN research directly influences the dive industry's training standards and safety protocols. Whether it's flying-after-diving guidelines, prevention of recreational dive fatalities or diving with various medical conditions, we work to find answers that can be used to keep divers safe.

Thank you for your continued support.
