Not pictured: Giordan Harris. Truman Kohler Courtesy of Amy LaCost Always dive with a buddy. Never dive alone. Wait at least 12 hours before ying after doing a single dive. Wait 18-24 hours after doing multiple dives. Divers Alert Network (DAN) recommends refraining from strenuous work at least 24 hours before AND after diving. Keep your gear up-to-date and serviced regularly. DAN recommends that regulators get overhauled at least once a year. Each diver should have their own computer. On any given dive, both divers in the buddy pair should follow the most conservative computer. Do not ascend greater than 60 feet per minute. Even if not required, always make a safety stop at 15 feet for at least 3 minutes. Start the dive day with the deepest dive rst. Avoid making multiple deep dives on the same day. DIVE SAFETY TIPS!
