Handheld underwater metal detectors are composed of a coil, control box, handle, and shaft, and provide visual, audible, and/or tactile alerts when metallic objects are detected. Responders use these devices to locate metallic objects underwater.
The Handheld Underwater Metal Detectors Focus Group Report is a limited distribution document, and is available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
