Medical Services

DAN’s medical services are available to divers, dive professionals and health care providers. We offer continuing medical education, an emergency hotline, medical information, physician consultations, educational programs and a worldwide referral network of doctors who treat and evaluate divers.

The DAN Emergency Hotline is staffed by a team of doctors, nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians who are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide information, coordinate care and facilitate evacuations.

Emergency Assistance

When you need it most, DAN will be here to help. We coordinate emergency evacuations and cover the costs — up to US$150,000 per person. Every DAN member is entitled to these emergency services as well as travel, medical, legal and personal assistance.

In an emergency, contact local EMS, then call DAN at +1 (919) 684-9111.
