According to the Sanya Fire Department, a professional underwater rescue team has been set up to improve the maritime search and rescue capabilities of Sanya, reports

In recent two years, because of the fast development of fishing industry and frequent occurrences of bad weather, the offshore accidents have become more common. That has made it more difficult for rescue team to rescue the victims of such accidents.
The underwater rescue team, consisting of 13 members, is elaborately selected from professional fire fighters. The establishment of thr rescue team will further improve the city’s ability in maritime search and rescue in future.
