Lake County is exploring the concept of reconstituting a rescue/recovery diving capability within the county. One of the initial steps in this process is to determine whether there are any volunteers interested in serving on a Lake County Dive Team.

Lake County is seeking applicants interested in becoming part of a public safety dive team. Public safety diving is a diving operation performed solely for search, rescue, recovery, investigation or related public safety purposes conducted by divers working for or under the control of a governmental agency (Savage, 2014).

The Lake County Dive Team is proposed to operate under the authority of the Lake County Emergency Management Agency for daily operations and non-fatal, non-rescue operations, and under the supervision of law enforcement during loss of life and rescue incidents.

Successful applicants will be trained in rescue and recovery diving techniques used to rescue people trapped below water and to recover drowning victims and submerged property.

This is a volunteer opportunity. Most costs of training will be reimbursed upon successful completion of training and/or service obligations.

Interested persons are encouraged to review the eligibility requirements and complete the interest application form.
