|Writing reports in the rain|
P1 Member Andrew Lampe
Most of us have had issues with writing information for reports in the rain while on duty. For me it seems like this is primarily on accidents.
I have tried the old military trick of using a pencil or using a large freezer bag. I just recently obtained my scuba open water certification and used what is called a "dive slate" to record my dive times. It is a white plastic slate that is written on with a pencil. It is designed to be used underwater and works great in the rain. It is easily cleaned with certain cleaners, toothpaste, sandpaper, or a kitchen sink scrub pad. They can be found online through scuba shops and a basic one is around ten dollars.
Throw one in your gear bag or door pocket and you are set for wet weather.
