The Dive Team was founded in 2007 as a special unit of the Groveland Fire Department. The team responds to all water rescue calls within our coverage area and is called out to other cities in need of mutual aid.
Most of the underwater missions are conducted by feel and touch due to the dark waters and poor visibility. The diver’s remaining senses must compensate for this lack of sight. Since failure is not an option, we dive as one with a shared vision in mind to complete each mission.
The team trains year-round in various types of weather and water conditions.
