NF 57-03-21 (05-17) Diving Emergency Assistance Plan (DEAP)
What: This document is used to list emergency contacts, hospitals, recompression chambers, and other EMS entities for a specific diving location. It also includes general instructions for treatment of diving casualties.
When: The UDS will ensure a version of this form is completed for every location or activity in which any of the information is different from the version of the DEAP currently on file at NDC. A copy should also be submitted with the first Dive Operations Plan (NF 57-03-20) of each calendar year. Completed DEAPs are submitted to NDC via the NDP.Diveplans@noaa.gov email account. A copy must be present at the dive site during the dive.
Record keeping: During a dive at this location, a printed copy of the DEAP should be at the dive site. A digital or printed copy should be retained at the unit until the form is updated with more current information.
