With an eye on promoting dive safety in Southern Africa, DAN has an extensive list of resources to ensure that members get the maximum possible advantage from their membership.
The DAN Hotline
The DAN hotline is available 24/7/365 to divers in need whether they have a diving medical emergency or simply have a medical question. This indispensable lifeline exists because of the support of our members. Call 0800 020 111 from inside South Africa or +27 828 10 60 10 from outside South Africa.
DAN Medical Research
With studies such as Flying after Diving, Doppler Bubble Research and Project Dive Safety DAN is actively contributing to increasing dive safety and leading the industry in diving physiology research.
Emergency Evacuation Benefits
As a DAN-SA member, you are entitled to the benefits of our emergency medical programme. This includes evacuation in a medical emergency when you travel more than 100 km from home or when you are on a dive trip. In addition, the benefit extends to include non-diving, emergency medical expenses when you are travelling outside your country of permanent, registered residence for a maximum period of three months (Plus and Master members only).
DAN Family Support
DAN Family Support provides an immediate R15 000 to R25 000 payout to the nominated next of kin on notification of the dive-related death of an active DAN member, subject to the terms and conditions listed in the DAN Membership Handbook.
DAN Chamber Assistance Programme
A network of hyperbaric facilities worldwide is supported by DAN and its membership fees. With DAN’s assistance, hyperbaric facilities are improved to provide the best possible service to injured divers.
Diver IDentification System
The Diver IDentification System (DIDS) monitors up to 24 divers at the same time, ensuring that everyone returns safely. No diver will ever be left behind! Contact the DAN Industry Partner team about how you can start using the DIDS on 011 266 4900 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
