Divers Alert Network


divers alert network - DAN - philippinesCebu Dive & Adventure Travel Philippines is proud to support DAN Asia-Pacific (DAN AP). The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a global network of not-for-profit, member-based, dive safety organisations working for the safety of all divers through education, research and training.

DAN AP provides Worldwide Emergency Evacuation Coverage and optional Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance Services for Members. In addition the organisation is responsible for funding and/or manning 24-hour diving emergency hotlines throughout the
Asia-Pacific region.

DAN AP is a part of the International DAN Federation of Dive Safety Organisations with worldwide Membership presently exceeding 300,000.

Wherever members live or dive around the world they have peace of mind knowing that DAN is available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to assist in the event of an accident/illness.

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 the unexpected, namely dive accidents and illnesses. It’s essential that divers have a reputable organisation to call that will be able to co-ordinate a rescue effort and get them to the most appropriate treatment for their injury or illness. And then there is the issue of cost. DAN protection ensures the diver will not be lumbered with the burden of a potentially hefty invoice in the event of an accident or illness.

An Example
In 2007 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.

The essence of 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.

Dive Safety Information

Presented by
DAN Asia-Pacific, Your Buddy in Dive Safety


 All diving involves a degree of risk, because, after all, we are air-breathing mammals and are not designed for breathing underwater. If we accept this premise, and admit to ourselves that we are voluntarily entering an alien environment, we are more likely to approach our diving with a sensible degree of caution. We must also acknowledge that we rely totally on our equipment while diving. 

These safety hints apply to ALL dives and should be read in addition to those hints for specific types of diving.



Do you have any diving medical related questions?  Do you have any concerns about the effects of diving?  Follow the link below to find all the answers to many common and some less common questions relating to diving medical issues.




As divers, we hope to never find ourselves in need of emergency medical assistance as a result of a diving accident.  However, statistics highlight that accidents do happen, even to the most experienced divers, so we should all have a plan of action that will prepare us for the unexpected.

If you ever find yourself in an emergency situation, when in Australia, your first step should be to call the Divers Alert Network (DAN) funded
Diving Emergency Services Medical Hotline on 1800 088 200.

If you are calling from Outside Australia you need to call: +61-8-8212 9242.
This number is available to all divers throughout the world.

As we all know many of the world’s top dive destinations are in remote areas that are difficult to access and often result in significant costs in terms of emergency evacuation and subsequent medical treatment.  Therefore, DAN strongly recommends that all divers be adequately covered for such a contingency.  And remember, if you are prepared for the unexpected you can focus on what’s most important … enjoying your diving!
