      American Group Trains ZAKA Divers


      For the first time, the Emergency Response Diver International group (ERDI) is training divers with the Israeli response group ZAKA. The first group of students is currently finishing a grueling training process that will qualify them as search-and-rescue divers.

      ZAKA’s volunteer divers are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, sources in the organization said. “Between the stories that make the news there are numerous quiet, private real incidents where a family loses a loved one in the sea or a body of water,” the group said.
