Conference Details

The Expo

The PSD Conference Expo is your opportunity to view and experience multiple public safety dive vendors in one place. It’s not too often that so many industry leaders in public safety diving are in one room to display the latest and greatest gear, including full face masks, dry suits, personal flotation devices, and much more.
The Expo will only be open to ID card-holding members of the public safety community and their guests.
If you have a product or offer a service that supports public safety diving, you'll be interacting with dive teams members and their command staff. On-site sales, demonstrations, and exhibits are all welcome!  We will have more details soon regarding the floor plan and displays.

Honor Guard Competition

On November 8th at 9:30 AM, honor guard teams are invited to compete in the first annual public safety dive conference & expo honor guard competition. The honor guard competition is a great opportunity for teams to represent their agency and community, as well as network with other agencies from across the state and country.

As honor guards, it’s their duty to honor our fallen brothers and sisters. They take pride in their attention to detail and do so with integrity, honor, and pride. This competition will demonstrate the passion and precision of the honor guard in a competitive environment. Prizes will be awarded to the best teams.
