Before the use of military qualified National Guard Diver personnel for hull inspection activities, the vessels must be secured by the responsible law enforcement officials. Divers may visually inspect and report to LEAs any unusual physical hull configurations but may not attempt entry, search, removal or alteration of features detected. Divers participating in these operations must be on dive status in approved dive positions. National Guard personnel will not dive in a permissive dive status conducting mission 2f.
