Divers Alert Network (DAN) has maintained a diving incident database since 1989. Originally it was limited to scuba diving incidents. This online reporting system is designed to include breath-hold diving and rebreather incidents separately from scuba incidents.


Persons reporting cases are not required to provide their name and contact information. The information is requested to facilitate follow up if warranted (and if the person grants permission for contact to be made - asked as one of the final questions). The results of our data collection and analyses may be made public for the benefit of the community. Data are released only in anonymous form. No individual shall be identified in the reviews of cases presented verbally or published.

We appreciate your time and effort in providing this information. The incident collection instrument is divided into eight steps/tabs each with a series of questions. The time required to complete the forms will vary with the amount of detail available and the complexity of the case. Hidden fields will appear if responses prompt the need. Each tab will be saved automatically when you select "Submit and Continue." After saving a tab, you will automatically be moved to the next one. You will be able to move forward and backward through saved tabs to make any necessary changes until you select "Done - Submit Incident Report" on the final tab. At that time, you will no longer be able to return to the case.

All information obtained during the study, including the respondent's identity, will be kept confidential to the full extent allowed by law.

Please contact Research@DAN.org if you have questions or issues concerning this process.
