Diving and saving lives with the DIVESMART Baltic project

20 Dec 2016

During an accident at sea the initial search and rescue hours are vital – minutes saved are lives saved – especially in an underwater environment. This video shows how rescue divers of the Stockholm police, fire brigades and coast guard exercise together. Jonas Westerberg, manager of the project DiveSMART Baltic, explains why rescue divers from around the Baltic Sea need to work together.

Interreg Baltic Sea Region stimulates cooperation between rescue divers from around the Baltic Sea to make them ready for large scale ship accidents such as the one of Coast Concordia. The DiveSMART Baltic project invests € 2.8 million into joint exercises, common guidelines and shared mobilisation strategies.
