Retired Charter Captain Donates Safety System

Retired dive-charter captain Jim Robinson recently donated his diver-recall system to the Door County Dive Team.

The unit has an amplifier that’s mounted on the boat with a 60-foot cable that connects to an underwater speaker that can broadcast a siren – like those on police cars and fire trucks – almost 3,000 feet underwater. If divers are down and an emergency arises, the unit is activated to alert divers to surface and return to the boat. The unit also features other broadcast options that can be used for a variety of underwater communications and warnings.
