Why is it so important that as Divers we are protected with DAN Membership & Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance?
It’s all about being prepared for unexpected diving accidents and illnesses, and having a reputable organisation to call that specialises in helping sick and injured divers all over the world, that will be able to co-ordinate a rescue effort and, should we need it, cover the costs associated with an evacuation or chamber/hospital treatment.
Emergency Evacuation: Case Example
DAN was involved in the evacuation of a paralysed diver from the Solomon Islands to Australia. The evacuation cost was around AUD$90,000 (as an aircraft had to be sourced from far away). In addition, the treatment costs were in excess of US$30,000, plus on-going expenses.
DAN Membership & Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance is about being prepared. DAN offers members peace-of-mind, which comes from knowing they have the experts in diver accident management to call in the event of a diving accident or illness.
