Why be a DAN rescuer
A diving accident is an event that may be beyond your control. It can simply occur around us. For the rescuer it is not important what caused the accident, but only to proceed effectively and provide efficient help to the injured. The greater the theoretical knowledge, but above all practical skills, the greater the chance of a successful rescue operation and full recovery of the person(s) injured in a diving accident. The knowledge and skills gained primarily affect the safety of all divers. It is worth noting that the comprehensive training of base or dive center staff definitely increases the prestige of the institution in the eyes of divers using its services and their families.
