The Midwest Technical Recovery Team (MTRT) is a group of volunteers
primarily consisting of SCUBA Instructors, Divemasters, Technical and Rescue
divers, including U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains. We are organized to
assist Law Enforcement and the Community in the recovery of persons or
property from depths greater than the recognized sport diving maximum
However, MTRT does not limit our assistance to the greater
depths, they will assist in many other environments such as low visibility when called upon.
The team regularly trains at depths greater than the
recreational limits, often in poor to zero visibility, and train year
round, including under the ice.
Team training consists of Public Safety
Diving, Underwater Crime Scene Investigation, Underwater Photography/Videography,
Ice Diving, and Decompression Diving using Advanced Nitrox and Trimix
blends of breathing gasses.
Individual divers pay for their own equipment and training.
In addition to monetary expense we
donate many hours of hard work training both in and out of the water.
Team equipment is paid for by the team members and through donations
from the community.
