We’re here with Frances Smith, veteran emergency hotline medic here at DAN, for a quick tip on when you can use DAN Boater resources. Frances, let me ask you, one of the most common questions we get from potential members is “Do I have to be on my boat, or even boating somewhere, in order to use the DAN Boater services?” Glad you asked that and the answer is no. You do not have to be on your boat. DAN is available here for you 24/7/365 for any emergency, and that includes both on and off the boat. Just to give you, maybe, a for instance, we’ve had several members who are off their boats, vacationing in a foreign country, and one
lady in particular was injured severely in an accident. We helped her both find local
resources and if repatriation is needed to a higher medical facility we absolutely are
here to help with those repatriation needs. Great! Well, thank you Frances, we appreciate it. Oh, you are very welcome. It’s been a pleasure.
