Dear DAN Business Member,
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you that your new DAN region is DAN World. DAN World has been established to better serve the needs of members and businesses like yours in regions outside of the United States and Canada but previously covered by DAN America.
As a DAN World Business you will still have access to many of your favorite programs, such as online publications, special business pricing on products, and the DAN Diver Identification System. Other programs will now be available in a limited fashion, such as points for new members, insureds, and students. These points will still be available, but only if the individual you sign up lives within the United States or Canada. New opportunities also await you when you elect to participate in the program that was designed by the company that will now be handling the assistance programs for your region.
Traveler Emergency Medical Services (Traveler EMS) is now the provider for your Travel Assistance needs. Working closely with DAN World they have developed a program for diving businesses that will allow you to grow a new revenue stream, something very important in today’s difficult economy. Since August 1, 2009 you have been able to get information on the new Traveler EMS programs by visiting their website at www.TravelerEMS.com.
If you have been participating in the automatic renewal program, we would like to let you know that we have discontinued that option outside the United States and Canada. You will need to contact Traveler EMS directly if you would like to talk to them about their automatic renewal plan.
One thing that has not changed is DAN’s commitment to diving safety, regardless of where you live or do business. The 24-hour Diving Emergency Hotline, the Medical Information Line, the Dive Medical Research Programs, and the Recompression Chamber Assistance Programs are all still in place using the same professionals at the same phone numbers that you have counted on for nearly 30 years.
If you have questions about your current DAN Business Membership contact us at +1-919-684-2948 Ext 295 Monday – Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm Eastern Time, US. Or for more information about your new opportunities with Traveler EMS call +1.202.470.0929 (English), +52.55.8421.9866 (Spanish), or +55.11.3711.7063 (Portuguese).
