Dive team trains for Search and Recovery

Missing "diver" is recovered by Dive team member Det. David Brummer.
The Sheriff’s Dive Team trained together with a visiting team from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office recently just offshore of the Bahia Honda Bridge.

The two teams utilized a fire-hose training dummy from the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department, and equipped it with scuba gear to create a simulated missing diver. The “diver” was placed in a location offshore, and then teams of divers utilized underwater search techniques to recover it.
