Whether in the dive center or at a dive site, different circumstances, activities, and locations will require different emergency action plans.

EMERGENCY
PLANNING

DESPITE OUR BEST EFFORTS TO PREVENT THEM, accidents still happen. Be prepared for anything by creating emergency action plans (EAPs) for all aspects of your dive operations. With effective training, proper equipment, and sound planning, you can be confident that your staff can effectively manage whatever emergencies arise.
