					                  Vision Statement
                   DAN’s vision is to be the most
                recognized and trusted organization
               worldwide in the fields of diver safety
             and emergency services, health, research
                   and education by its members,
             instructors, supporters and recreational
                     diving community at large.

                 Mission Statement
                    Divers Alert Network (DAN),
                  a non-profit organization, exists
              to provide expert medical information
              and advice for the benefit of the diving
               public. DAN’s historical and primary
                 function is to provide emergency
                 medical advice and assistance for
                   underwater diving injuries and
                      to promote diving safety.
                   DAN promotes and supports
                 underwater diving research and
               education, particularly as it relates
               to the improvement of diving safety,
                 medical treatment and first aid.
                DAN strives to provide the most
               accurate, up-to-date and unbiased
               information on issues of common
             concern to the diving public, primarily,
              but not exclusively, for diving safety.

Vision and

  Mission                        Statement

       ivers Alert Network, Inc. (DAN®) is a 501(c)(3) international non-profit organization, supported by the
       world’s largest association of recreational divers. Associated with Duke University Medical Center (DUMC),
       DAN was founded in 1980 by distinguished hyperbaric scientist
Dr. Peter B. Bennett, a professor of Anesthesiology at Duke University,
now CEO and President of DAN.
The DAN staff of 80-plus employees is dedicated to the DAN vision
of superlative service to its members, and many of DAN’s employees
are themselves divers with distinguished records in the scuba diving
DAN America’s distinctive office building is located in Durham, N.C.,
which is known as the “City of Medicine” and is one of the high-
technology centers in North Carolina’s renowned Research Triangle.
DAN America and its employees serve the North American, Latin
American and Caribbean recreational dive communities. DAN
America is also the world headquarters for International DAN (IDAN),
a federation of DAN-affiliated organizations in Europe, Japan,
the Southeast-Asia Pacific region and Southern Africa. The IDAN
federation forms a global safety net for recreational scuba divers,
with diving emergency hotlines and rescue capabilities.
The Source Divers Call in An Emergency . . .
From the time DAN began as a single telephone hotline at Duke
University Medical Center’s F.G. Hall Hypo / Hyperbaric Laboratory,                                  William M. Mercadante Photo
the organization has contributed greatly to the safety of recreational
diving and the understanding of dive physiology. Its best-known service continues to be its 24-Hour Diving
Emergency Hotline. On call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the highly trained dive medical team at DAN
provides emergency medical consultation and coordination of emergency medical evacuation and treatment.
. . . or with Dive Medical Questions
DAN medics also staff the DAN Dive Safety and Medical Information Line during regular business hours (8:30 a.m. -
8 p.m. Eastern Time) and respond to email queries that come to DAN via All of these
services are available at no charge to all divers as part of the DAN mission to provide expert medical information and
advice for the benefit of the diving public.
The Future of Dive Research
Divers Alert Network is the only organization in the world that conducts significant medical research specifically
on recreational dive safety. DAN researchers have delved into determining scientifically based surface intervals for
divers who plan to fly after diving, conducted ongoing studies on aging and its effect on dive health, and researched
the medical advisability of diving with insulin-requiring diabetes.

DAN Is...
                                                                            Helping Divers

DAN Research is also engaged in a massive effort around the world to collect dive profile data from recreational
divers using dive computers. With Project Dive Exploration (PDE), these profiles — essentially, road maps of each
dive recorded on dive computers — are collected by volunteers and delivered to DAN via the internet. The data is
then analyzed to help DAN scientists understand the relationship of the risk of decompression illness (DCI) to myriad
physical, medical and behavioral factors. The results of this study are likely to form the basis of future dive table and
dive computer models.
                                                         A Source of Diver Education
                                                         In addition, DAN develops, administers and conducts dive
                                                         first aid and medical training programs for divers, scuba
                                                         instructors and medical professionals. In conjunction with
                                                         its efforts to train divers in how to respond to a dive medical

This 2001 Annual Report strongly identifies DAN’s continued support of its mission as a dive medicine and safety
association. Its growth is due to the loyal support from its 150,000 North American members, plus the additional
60,000 international members, and the instructors, business members, dive stores, liveaboards, computer manufac-

Indeed, according to the September 2001 Fortune Small Business magazine, it is rare to survive the transition from
a small business to a fast-growing “gazelle.” The “gazelle” is among the elite 3 percent of all small companies that
grow at least 20 percent a year for four consecutive years.
You will see that DAN has many facets to its diamond reviewed in this annual report, including medical services,
research, operations, marketing, our website, internet kiosks, training, continuing medical education, industry
membership, and insurance services. At 21, DAN continues to grow and remains innovative and focused on provision
of excellent service to our members and the dive industry.
We hope you like this annual report of DAN activities and know that DAN and all our staff will continue to serve our
members in the very best way possible in support of our mission.
Yours in Dive Safety,

Peter B. Bennett, Ph.D., D.Sc.
President and Chief Executive Officer

The long-range plan of the DAN America Research department is to provide the epidemiology of diving fatalities, diving
injuries, and injury-free dives based on a cumulative analysis of on-going annual data collection and data collected since
1987. The objective is to identify diver characteristics, diver behaviors, and dive profiles that are associated with diving
injuries and fatalities.

record their depth-time profiles. Recognition of the importance of real-time diving data collection is growing as
other computer manufacturers, most recently Dive Rite, are joining Cochran, Suunto and Uwatec to provide PDE-
compatible dive computers. To date, PDE has collected more than 32,000 dives from dive shops, diving medicine
courses, and liveaboards around the world.
DAN also works with liveaboards to collect PDE data. For several years now, Nekton Cruises
has been collecting PDE data aboard their vessel the Nekton Pilot. In 2001, they also will
begin collecting the data aboard their new vessel, the Nekton Rorqual. Also, this year,
DAN began to work with the Aggressor Fleet to train staff members on their vessels in
PDE data collection. In 2001, DAN worked with two of their boats to set up a data
collection system that can be used by all of their vessels in the future.
Also in 2000, DAN trained three dive instructors in Cozumel, Mexico, to collect PDE
data. The goal with the Cozumel program is to allow PDE data collection to occur
year-round and involve numerous divers from all around the world. Also, the
Cozumel data collectors are developing a program that will allow PDE data
collection to benefit DAN with the data but also benefit the dive shops on the
island. These three instructors are starting to collect data on fellow divemasters
and instructors, which is allowing the dive shops to log their dive profiles. These
divemasters and instructors are logging numerous dives.



The DAN Internship Program expanded this year with the assistance of a generous grant from the ML Foundation
as well as additional grants from Our World-Underwater, the Harvey Weiner Memorial Fund, Ken Davis Foundation,
Cochran and Suunto dive computer manufacturers. DAN trained seven people this year in data collection procedures.
They have worked at sites on the East and West coasts, the Caribbean and Scotland.
The program is designed to expand PDE data collection; provide the interns with an experience in dive safety
research; and educate the diving public about DAN and PDE.
This year’s interns communicate the importance of dive
research and PDE data collection in the field as well
as assist DAN by training other divers to collect PDE
data. This will allow data collection to continue in the
locations where the interns were long after the interns’
time is finished.
The internship program would not be as successful as it
is if not for the interest and support of the host facilities.
In 2000 and 2001 the following host facilities gave time,
work space, lodging and knowledge to the interns and
enhanced learning experiences: Discovery Diving,
Beaufort, N.C.; Aquatic Safaris, Wilmington, N.C.; Duke
Marine Lab, Beaufort, N.C.; Lynnhaven Dive Center,
Virginia Beach, Va.; Dive Shop II, Boynton Beach, Fla.;
Laguna Sea Sports, Laguna Beach, Calif.; USC Catalina
Hyperbaric Chamber, Avalon, Calif.; Captain Slate’s
Atlantis Dive Center, Key Largo, Fla.; Beaches Resort,
Provo, Turks and Caicos.
Major projects with which DAN personnel are involved
take place at Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and
Environmental Physiology at Duke University Medical
Center. Physicians and scientists on DAN’s staff conduct
research funded by the U.S. Navy and NASA, bringing
world-class scientific and medical expertise to DAN-
sponsored research by conducting studies in the preven-
tion of decompression sickness (DCS) in astronauts
building the space station (funded by NASA) and in                                                    William M. Mercadante Photo

Additional U.S. Navy and NASA-funded projects seek to understand bubble formation and inert gas exchange in the
body, the results of which can be applied to sport divers.
The results of the DAN-sponsored Flying After Diving studies have been used by the U.S. Navy in developing flying-
after-diving guides. The Navy’s continuing interest in flying after diving has led them to sponsor a new project to
determine how much oxygen breathing before flying to will reduce the preflight surface interval.

DAN Medical Services provides vital emergency services for divers and medical education, and it continues as the back-
bone of the DAN organization. Increased staffing for DAN Medicine has helped overall efficiency, especially for the Medical
Information services (phone and email), as well as the DAN Diving Emergency Hotline. With the addition of two full-time
medics earlier this calendar year, DAN Medicine is now operating with a full complement of medics. An additional staff
member has also been added to manage and update the changing physician and chamber referral databases.
                                                                        With the advent of expanded hours for Medical

phone inquiries for medical information, brought the total number of medical inquiries since 1980 to 170,802.
The website also contains a DAN Medical Center section where users can review medical articles from Alert Diver and
frequently asked questions (FAQs) about medical conditions and diving. In June 2001 there were 38,650 hits and 6,909
visitors to the Medical section of the website.
In FY2001, DAN medics responded

FY2001 was a banner year for DAN Training, including the celebration of its 10th anniversary and the certification of the
10,000th DAN Instructor.
But this wasn’t a year to rest. DAN Training completely revised the DAN Instructor materials for all courses to meet the new
American Heart Association guidelines, created a new, complete Instructor Trainer Manual and completely restructured the
Instructor Qualification Course (IQC). The new IQC now features a Core Module that teaches Instructor candidates to be
DAN Instructors. After completing the Core Module, candidates can take course modules for the programs they are inter-
ested in teaching. Candidates can take one or all of the course modules, as they see fit. This program revision will serve
to drive more Instructor candidates to become DAN Instructor Trainers, creating more active and vocal advocates for DAN.
                  This year was also spent creating a completely new DAN Training program, Automated External
                  Defibrillators (AEDs) for Scuba Diving. Sudden cardiac arrest kills between 225,000 and 250,000
                  people each year, according to the American Heart Association. As in the general population, divers die
                                 from heart conditions. In fact, approximately 30 percent of
                                 dive fatalities involving divers over 35 are
                                 attributed to cardiovascular disease. This
                                 program teaches divers, and
                                 interested non-divers, to
                                 use automated external
                                 defibrillators to defibril-
                                 late a heart in ventricular
                               fibrillation, the most common
                               cause of sudden cardiac arrest.
                                To distinguish the programs, DAN
                                Training also created a series
                                of icons to represent each of them.
                                The icons serve
as graphic representation of course materials.
Instructors will now be able to quickly find related
materials by watching for these icons.
DAN Training was also able to respond to a
common request from DAN Instructors and
develop CD-ROM versions of the teaching
presentation materials. All three of these major
revisions and developments were developed in
FY2001 and released at the beginning of FY2002.
The existing DAN Training Programs continued to
progress as well.

• The savings help provide additional support to DAN dive safety research projects.
Working in concert with DAN Marketing and the Industry Membership program, DAN
Communications began publishing quarterly editions of On Board, the
newsletter for the DAN Industry Membership program.
DAN Communications also merged the quarterly
Oxygen Window into On Board, streamlining the
process through which Business Members and
Instructors are informed about goings-on at DAN.
To enhance the promotion and marketability of DAN
products in the Industry Membership program, DAN
Communications created a Resource Guide for Industry
Members and a Product Catalog, with quarterly updates
of Product Listings.
Consistent with the mission of education, DAN
Communications wrote and disseminated media releases
to dive media outlets in the United States and around the
world, informing the dive public of current news, both at
DAN and industrywide. Media releases are posted immedi-
ately on the DAN website, which is constantly updated with the assistance of the Information Technology Department.
The releases included announcements of new programs, upcoming DAN events, honors and awards, and scuba
equipment recalls.


The Student Membership Program grew bigger and faster than ever before in the first half
of 2001. From January to June, DAN enrolled 16,564 new Student Members, and 1,267
instructors from 17 countries in the DAN Americas region participated in the program.
In June alone, DAN set two records, for the most new Student Members in one month
(3,583), and for the most new DAN members from the Student Membership Program
in one month (471).
The Student Membership Program began in February 1998. DAN offers complemen-
tary dive insurance to any entry-level scuba student taking a class from a certified
instructor in the DAN Americas region (North America, South America, Caribbean
and U.S. Territories). DAN also provides each student a free copy of the Alert Diver
magazine and DAN membership information. This program continues to expand and
create many new DAN members, most of whom purchase DAN dive insurance. From
January through June, for example, 1,628 students purchased DAN insurance when
they joined this year.
The Student Membership Program has undergone several major changes, with more
on the way. The new Student Membership Video for Instructors is now available, as
is the new online registration on the DAN website. Revisions are planned to the
Student Membership Roster and Membership Packets to make it easier and more
conducive for Instructors to participate in the program and for students to join DAN.
In FY2001, the official website for DAN,, has continued
to be an important avenue of communication with DAN Members and divers all over
the world. About a half-million visitors see DAN on the web. The DAN website is
currently averaging 1.8 million hits each month, with a yearly total of approximately
22 million hits. Continually evolving, the DAN website is updated on a regular basis        Steve
                                                                                                       tt Pho
with the latest DAN happenings. From DAN workshop recommendations to diving                                  to
equipment recalls, DAN Members can stay up to date.
One of the most commonly visited areas of the DAN website is the DAN Medical Center. With more information than ever
before, the site allows divers to quickly find information about diving medical issues. All the information is available
through a keyword search, making the site the most comprehensive dive health and safety information database online.
Also, the DAN website allows prospective and existing DAN Members to join DAN or renew their DAN Membership and buy
or purchase DAN insurance. Up to 40 percent of new DAN Members have joined via the DAN website in recent months.
With the assistance of an online DAN Product Listing, members also can buy DAN products online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week. Many members have used this option generating more than 2,000 orders and $175,000 in product sales.
Divers Alert Network has entered the “Clicks and Bricks” age with a web-enabled internet kiosk, the DAN Safety Stop. With
the DAN website as its engine, the DAN Safety Stop can be used by a dive center’s customers and staff to find information
about such things as medical questions and details of DAN Membership benefits and how to join or renew as a DAN mem-
ber. It’s like having a DAN representative in a store 24 hours a day.
Six kiosks have been installed at dive centers around the country — Weaver’s Dive and Travel Center in Boulder, Colo.; A-
1 Scuba and Travel Center in Englewood, Colo.; National Aquatic Service in Syracuse, N.Y.; Pro Dive in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.;
Laguna Sea Sports in Laguna Beach, Calif.; and Ocean Concepts in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

The special 40th Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Course celebrating DAN’s 20th anniversary was held on the Great
Barrier Reef in Australia on Oct. 16-28, 2000. Ninety persons made the journey, and 54 participated in an exceptional
course hosted by both DAN/Duke physicians and noted Australian physicians. Attendees came not only from across the
United States, but also from as far away as Saudi Arabia and South America to attend this internationally known course.
The spring of 2001 saw the 41st Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Course, which was held at the renowned Little Cayman
Beach Resort, Little Cayman, BWI. The attendees were hosted by internationally known faculty, dived the excellent waters
around Little Cayman, and helped to make this DAN course a continuing success.
DAN continued its series of “DAN Divers Days.” These one-day educational / informational events were held in Durham
and San Diego. These special educational days continue DAN’s mission of providing “expert medical information and
advice for the benefit of the diving public.” The attendees agreed with DAN’s intent and provided comments to support this:
• “Great value for my money – thank you!”
• “How can you improve on perfection? I am really impressed with everything.”
• “Excellent presentations. Has many clearly explained suggestions to make recreational diving safer. Thank you.”
• “Very good background / intro. Nice to have key admins doing presentations and available for questions.”

DAN and Beaches Resorts, a member of the Sandals Resort family, picked up a current industry trend of “partnering” by
hosting the first DAN-Beaches Dive Festival 2000. Beaches Turks & Caicos was the host site for this festival, which brought
together divers who had first-hand information sessions with DAN headquarters staff, participated in the festival social
activities with internationally known guest speakers, and dived the crystal waters of the Turks & Caicos Islands. DAN-

The International Department acts as the liaison and facilitator for the five DAN organizations within the International DAN
(IDAN) Federation: DAN America, DAN Europe, DAN Southern Africa, DAN Japan and DAN South East Asia-Pacific (SEAP).
These organizations communicate daily on patient referrals, the now-global DAN Oxygen First Aid program, membership,
insurance and research. DAN is working toward standardization of services and member benefits and greater cooperation
in areas of research, education and dive accident data sharing. The table below shows current numbers of supporting
memberships and oxygen Providers, Instructors and Instructor Trainers trained as of June 2001.

DAN Reaches Out to Latin America
To help reach the expanding diving community in Latin America,
DAN provides promotional, membership and training materials
in Spanish and Portuguese. The availability of materials in these two
languages helps make Latin American divers aware of DAN's safety,
education and research programs, as well as encourages continued
education for preparedness in the event of dive emergencies. This
year DAN created a dedicated Spanish / Portuguese language
emergency hotline (+1-267-520-1507) and network of chambers
and dive physicians to serve all of Central and South America. DAN
is also working to address the problems associated with managing
dive injuries in locations very far from a chamber.
DAN America is committed to helping IDAN affiliate organizations
worldwide. Today, divers can rely on DAN to serve them almost
everywhere they venture.

Launched on Dec. 1, 2000, the DAN Business Membership collected its 500th member seven months later. It, along
with DAN Development, supplanted the DAN Sponsor program late last year to comply with Internal Revenue Service
(IRS) regulations. The IRS ruled a true sponsor should not receive benefits in exchange for its contributions, other
than a simple recognition and perhaps a gift of insignificant value in relation to the donation, thus leading DAN to
change its program.
                                                  To provide supporters of DAN with ways to maintain Sponsor-type benefits for
                                                  businesses who desire them, DAN created the Business Membership program.
                                                  It covers dive training stores, dive resorts and liveaboards. Through annual
                                                  membership dues of $125, DAN Business members receive many advantages.
                                                  For example, the DAN Retail Product Distribution Program allows them selected
                                                  DAN products for resale under margins discounted more than ever before. The
                                                  Point Incentive program earns businesses one point for every new DAN Member
                                                  they enroll and one point for every DAN insurance plan sold to new members.
                                                  Points can be accumulated over a 24-month period and redeemed to obtain
                                                  DAN products. DAN Business Members are listed on the DAN website and our
                                                  members are directed to them. In addition, Business Members can link to the
                                                  DAN website, with a hotlink to their websites, and receive a DAN Business
                                                  Member Certificate, a DAN Dive Flag, DAN Decals, two DAN Memberships,
                                                  a subscription to Alert Diver, and use of the DAN Business Member logo.
                                                  In return, DAN Business Members help publicize the DAN mission of promoting
                                                  dive education, safety, health and research by their dues and their participation
                                                  in programs involving such DAN departments as
                                                  Training and Research. They also can contribute
                                                  additional tax-deductible monies to DAN as part
                                                  of the DAN Development program.
                                         By mid-2001, the program became known as the
                                         Industry Membership program to cover DAN

                                         Instructors and Instructor Trainers who
wanted to support DAN as well as businesses. As a result, the official quarterly
magazine for DAN supporters, On Board, added the Oxygen Window quarterly
publication sent to Instructors and Instructor Trainers as part of its package.
There are dedicated customer service representatives at DAN who handle all
Industry Members’ questions, concerns and product orders on a special
 toll-free line weekdays. There is a special email address for them to use too.
The DAN Industry Membership program gives its supporters an added edge in
the dive industry to help them be successful. At the same time, the money raised by
DAN Industry Members assists DAN in meeting its goal of providing the best, most recent
information on dive safety.

DAN Development grew out of the former Sponsorship program when Internal Revenue Service rules said a true sponsor
of DAN should not receive benefits in exchange for a contribution, other than a simple recognition and a gift of insignifi-
cant value in relation to the donation. Like DAN Sponsorship, DAN Development handles fund-raising events and appeals;
coordinates finances received through grants and foundations; notes donations and donor packages; and handles other
contributions, such as memorial gifts and matching gifts. Development differs primarily from Sponsorship in that it
concentrates on seeking more outside revenue for the organization, including developing planned giving, cultivating
larger donors and seeking grant monies.
With the change to Development came a streamlining of the different levels and designations for what used to be DAN
Sponsors. There are 12 levels for DAN Donors. The levels are based on the amount of money donated to DAN rather than
the dive operation’s status as a store, corporation, etc., as with          Comparative of General & Endowment Appeal Returns:
Sponsorship. The levels and their designations are as follows:                                         1996 - 2001
                                                                               (Does not include Sponsor, Memorial, Grants and other donations)

Those giving $99 or less are classified as Donors. A separate category
remains for planned giving donations — the DAN Heritage Society                DAN sends a special thank-you to its many Donors who support the mission

handles DAN supporters who bequeath or designate a portion of
their estates to DAN in their wills or establish living or testamentary trusts, with DAN as a beneficiary. DAN Development
oversees the DAN Heritage Society.
DAN Development also still supervises the Spring and Fall Fund-raisers for DAN. The closeout totals as of May 1, 2001 for
the Fall 2000 appeal listed 3,940 donors. Total donations were $170,493.32. This is an average donation of $43.27 and
a range of $1 to $2,500 for an individual donation. Of those donations, the Charter Boat Identification Board program
(C.B.I.D.) continues to be strong, with $16,675.01 from 205 donors. As of June 30, 2001 the Spring Fund-raiser was off
to an excellent start with 3,336 donations in the preliminary tally. Total donations were $126,498.60, which is an average
donation of $37.92. This is a 100 percent increase for both total donations and number of donors as compared to the Fall
Aside from the fall appeal, the Endowment Fund, which is managed by the Trust Company of the South in Burlington, N.C.,
received 3,977 donations for a total of $61,530.94 from Dec. 1, 2000 until June 28, 2001. The total donations to the
Endowment now stand at $234,464.14. Memorial donations increased 385 percent over last year to a high of $15,016.02
from 169 donors.
Total donations to DAN for FY2001 reached $565,867. DAN is especially grateful and sends a special “Thank You” to all of
these donors who support the organization’s mission. Their efforts created additional pathways for revenue streams at DAN
and a successful return of these investments toward dive medicine, research, education and safety.


A for-profit, wholly owned subsidiary of DAN America, DAN Services, Inc. was incorporated in FY1999 as part of a growing
trend among tax-exempt organizations to manage unrelated business income and protect their 501(c)(3) status. As with
many 501(c)(3) organizations, DAN provides its members with useful and impor-
tant services that are not directly related to its tax-exempt mission. DAN
Services, Inc. pays tax on the revenues generated by these activities,
while allowing DAN to maintain a ratio of “related business income”
to “unrelated business income” well within accepted Internal
Revenue Service limits.
DAN Services, Inc. manages the DAN Membership / Customer
Services Department, which handles the questions about DAN
membership, including the administration of the popular dive
accident insurance programs. The in-bound call center operates
from 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. Eastern Time (1330-2200
Greenwich Mean Time), but DAN Members can leave voice
messages after hours or fax, mail or email requests to the
department at any time.
As of June 30, 2001, Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) answered
64,530 telephone calls and made 7,213 return calls to members. In the same period, Membership CSRs also handled
6,809 pieces of emailed correspondence, 4,015 pieces of standard mail correspondence and 3,369 pieces of faxed
DAN Services also began doing data entry in-house in this period, and membership CSRs completed 102,136 pieces.
In addition, the CSRs processed 18,976 applications from the internet. And DAN Services assumed responsibility for
data entry of the Student Membership Program (for more details on that, see p. 13).
A popular, recent addition to the insurance program is the DAN Preferred Plan, introduced by DAN Services, Inc. in
May 2000. The DAN Preferred Plan available for U.S. residents offers a dramatic increase in dive accident coverage, with
increased benefit levels for skin- and scuba-diving injuries: up to $250,000 per occurrence; medical accident coverage
for non-diving injuries outside the insured’s home country; and dive vacation cancellation AND interruption coverage
(all subject to terms and conditions).
Under the Preferred Plan, an insured person in the U.S. can receive up to $10,000 lifetime coverage for non-dive accident
medical coverage occurring outside the insured’s home country. If an illness or an injury occurs before or during the trip,
the DAN Preferred Plan provides up to $10,000 for an injured person’s losses incurred for a dive trip cancelled before
departure. If an injury or illness after departure results in the dive trip’s interruption, the DAN Preferred Plan provides up
to $5,000. Additionally, this plan offers up to $2,000 for extra transportation and up to $3,000 for extra accommodations
in the event of a covered dive accident.
The $99 fee for the DAN Preferred Plan includes DAN individual membership and DAN TravelAssist emergency medical
evacuation assistance benefits as well as insurance. The United States Life Insurance Company in the City of New York is
the policy underwriter. For more details, call 1-800-446-2671.
Divers Alert Network, Inc. wholly owns DAN Services, Inc. All income generated by DAN Services, Inc., flows to DAN,
creating additional financial stability to DAN as it rides the peaks and troughs of the scuba diving industry business cycle.


DAN experienced another record year in 2001 as revenues climbed 10 percent to $9.75 million. More than 92 percent
of DAN’s operating budget was used for program services including over $2.75 million contributed towards recreational
diving research, medical programs, and training and education.

DAN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization,
but many may not realize that most of DAN’s
funding comes from members rather than outside
support. Since funding is primarily from dues,
product sales, donations, course fees, and
insurance royalties, the organization continues
a focused mission and responsive attitude towards             $2,000,000

member concerns. The result is an association                 $1,000,000

and constantly tries to improve services.
Membership and related services continued to represent a significant amount of DAN’s operating budget in 2001. The
$29 regular membership contribution supported membership benefits such as DAN TravelAssist and services for all divers
including the 24-hour emergency hotline, with 53 percent of revenues derived from membership dues. Members also
helped fund DAN programs by purchasing safety products, insurance and related services that generated more than 23
percent of total revenues this year. In 2001 more than $8.49 million went into programs that benefited members and
recreational scuba divers worldwide, a 14 percent increase over the prior year. This increase in funding and continued
success is a result of very dedicated staff maintaining focus and providing programs and services that support DAN’s safety
and health mission. You can expect more of the same in the future. The continued health and safety of members and
divers around the world depends on our success.
