Public Safety Diver

Public Safety Diving (PSD) has come a long way in the last 20 years. Yet the road is still long and paved with danger. PSD comprises more than a sport diver throwing his gear on his back and jumping in the water. A Public Safety Diver cannot choose the conditions in which he/she works. Often conditions consist of black water, freezing temperatures, and/or dangerous contamination. Regardless of the good intentions of the dive team, insufficient training, ill-defined techniques and a lack of knowledge or ability can kill divers. Public Safety Divers must be sufficiently trained to handle all conditions. To successfully recover anything a team of divers must be knowledgeable and safe. (Course minimum is 6 candidates)
