NePSD Hosts PSD Survival Class for 2nd Time

This weekend, NePSD, in conjunction with the North Jersey Regional Scuba Task Force will host PSD legends Mark Phillips and Buck Buchanan for the 2nd time while they put on their PSD Survival class. This course focuses exclusively on how public safety divers can respond to the subsurface emergencies that are life-threatening. Special attention is paid to clearing entanglements, breath control and air consumption, low air or out of air emergencies, and how to solve problems one breath at a time. In our opinion, this course is a must-have for any public safety diver.
