Dumb question, but do people the do dive search and rescue get a tax refund for their equipment?

My guess is that if a diver volunteers to do S&R, then they use their own gear voluntarily and shouldn’t expect a refund.
It seems to me that only professional S&R divers are given certain tax benefits for using their own gear.
I could be wrong.
Here’s a link to an article that may help answer your question.

I have several friends on the local Dive team. The only perks are free air fills.
