Yeah it sounds like it would be cool, but dont forget that there is a down side too. A lot of it would be fun, but for example pulling someones child from its baby seat after an hour or two of being submerged in the minivan might take the warm fuzzies out of the job. Its something that has to be done, but it scores WAY NEGATIVE on the fun day at work scale. Divers dont save drowning people in this job - when their looking, its for a body maybe one thats been on the bottom for over a week. Sorry for the grusomeness of the post but wanted to bring up the bad side of the job. I`m considering doing it also once I get a little more dive experience and would do it on a volunteer basis for local fire dept as a way to give back to the community, but I have thought a lot about the negative side of the job because they all arent pleasure dives.
