Joe or anyone else,

Do you know of or have you heard of DAN (diver's assistance network)? or something like that?
My understanding is that if you purchase their insurance and you get hurt in another country, they will airlift you to the U.S.. I also understand you don't have to be a diver to have this insurance and it is approximately $40/yr.

This is about all I know.

This subject may be a good one for people that frequent Mexico, especially if you don't like to wear your seatbelts ;) .

Any information would be good.

I'm not a diver, but a Google search found the following site which looks to be what you described.

Cool thanks.... I knew I had something incorrect, "alert" instead of "assistance".

So all your have to do to have the evacuation coverage is become a member of DAN.

Hi James,

Yes... DAN has great insurance. I don't however, know if you need to be certified to qualify. I've paid for the family insurance covering dive gear and injuries (never had to use it thank goodness). If you do need to be certified, let me know <grin>.
