New Underwater Diver Rescue Equipment
DVFD has raised just over $23,000 towards our goal of $40,000
All of our divers are now outfitted with Tactical BCD's (buoyancy control devices) environmental regulators (prevent freezing) and full face mask dive masks and dry suits to protect divers from water conditions.
Our next step in fundraising will target wireless communications (our full face masks are compatible) which will allow dive tenders to communicate directly with the diver to be able to give directions and monitor the status/wellbeing of the diver.
After achieving the wireless communications goal we are looking at side imaging sonar which will assist the dive team in locating the target prior to deploying divers into the area of highest probability.
