California “Mobile Diving Unit”

California is divided into three sections and if there was one Mobile Dive Unit per section and all counties were trained on the SSD equipment, there could be a Mutual Aid Dive Rescue System.

If a disaster were to happen off the coast of Santa Barbara and the local agency needed assistance and equipment, they could call a neighboring rescue team with a Mobile Dive Unit who would respond to the scene.

If more divers and equipment were needed they could call other teams to assist.
