The closure of NDAC has removed a well-managed inland site with excellent Emergency Action Plan (EAP ) support from UK technical diver training. Inland alternatives offering suitable depth are also often in remote locations. These locations can have additional challenges for evacuating casualties. Good examples of these sites are Dorothea and Wast water, but Scottish sea lochs and Cambrian mines can also provide similar challenging scenarios for casualty management.
A new document has been added to this website that aims to assist diving instructors with planning dives at these locations. Various points are illustrated with reference to Dorothea.
