​Welcome to Divers Alert Network Southern Africa

​DAN-SA is a Public Benefit Organisation that provides emergency medical advice and assistance for underwater diving injuries, and provides a wide range of research, education and training programmes that promote safe diving. DAN-SA is supported by more than 7 000 fellow divers with a further 250 000 international divers supporting DAN America, DAN Europe, DAN Japan, DAN Asia Pacific and DAN Southern America.
​The DAN Southern Africa administrative office will be closed over the holiday period from Monday 21 December 2015 until Monday 4 January 2016. The hotline is available 24/7/365. Any membership enquiries or applications received during that time, will only be processed after 4 January.  Please make sure to submit your applications and renewals before the office closed for the festive season. However, feel free to join and encourage divers to join and send us your faxes and e-mails for processing. If you have a query please send us an e-mail to mail@dansa.org regarding your membership.

Lastly we would like to urge our members if they require DAN tags to order before Wednesday 2 December 2015 due to the closer from our tag supplier, but you are more than welcome to still order your diver tags via the DAN Store and we will process your order in the new year.
