Southern Marin Dive Team
The Southern Marin Dive Team is a resource available for water rescue and dive emergencies in the Southern Marin service area. In addition, the team will make every effort to honor the request for mutual aid to other agencies. The SMDT is designed to respond to water emergencies where the probability of victim survival is likely. Nevertheless, the SMDT will attempt to make itself available to law enforcement agencies for body/evidence recovery as well as other water related incidents. The equipment cache is located at Southern Marin Fire Protection District Station 1. Due to the station's close proximity to Richardson Bay, the inflatable rescue boat (IRB-1) with a crew of fully equipped personnel can deploy quickly. The SMDT also has the capability of transporting its personnel, equipment and rescue boat to other waterways as needed.
