Among those on the ground (and in the water) offering help in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey are commercial dive crews. The Triton reports that Commercial Diver Services from Fort Lauderdale, Florida was one such crew that traveled to Texas to offer assistance. Commercial dive crews join volunteer and government dive rescue teams in the Harvey relief efforts. Dive teams from as far away as Billings, Montana and Milwaukee, Wisconsin are making the trek. Even after rescue efforts are no longer needed, commercial dive crews will likely play a continued role in Hurricane Harvey recovery by offering retrieval and cleanup services. Commercial diving companies can provide highly trained specialists who can get the job done safely. Although commercial diving teams have helped rescue others during the hurricane, one commercial diving vessel needed to be rescued by the Coast Guard, the Associated Press reports. A dozen people onboard the dive boat were airlifted to safety.Read more

The lanes may be too narrow for today’s vehicles, clearance may be too low, or the wood and steel parts are too rotted to sustain the loads going over it. Bridge Inspections are required every two years. State officials are t…Read more
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey commercial diving vessels are entering the state of Texas at the southern border. With elevated water levels, commercial divers are taking to the waters to rescue people who are trapped by the high level flood waters. Attempts are also being made to search and recover people who may be feared dead from the devastating storm. Large, medium and small vessels are making continuous rounds and picking people up who have remained and waited the storm out. The Category 4 hurricane Harvey has made a powerful impact as it overtook the southern border of Texas. The hurricane caused 2 dams and a levee to overflow in the city of Houston. Neighboring states are sending the aid of commercial diving vessel so that more divers can help search the southern border of Texas and near. As the waters slowly recede they are still high and there is no timeframe as to how long the search may last. The commercial divers are careful to make sure no areas are le…Read more
