Training of River Flotilla Divers in Winter Conditions

Monday, 22.2.2021 | Training
In the ship port for winter conditions on the part of the Danube near Novi Sad, the 1st River Detachment divers are currently performing regular training and exercises in winter conditions.

A great number of complex tasks they perform, from underwater blasting and weapons testing to search and rescue in all weather conditions requires that the training of the River Flotilla professional divers is continuous.

Performing dives in the conditions of reduced visibility, at very low temperatures, when ice often forms on rivers and canals, is one of the greatest challenges for divers, which is why regular training in winter conditions is an unavoidable part of training.

During winter, due to low temperatures, divers dive two to three times a week, and during summer every day.
