Help support the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber in its 38th year of service to the Southern California Diving Communities.

Chamber Day 2012 ( is only a few days away. The 24th annual Chamber Day and 14th annual Chamber Evening Fund Raiser for the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber will be held on Wednesday, 2 May.

Chamber Day PosterFor the past 38 years the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber has been dedicated to the treatment of diving accidents on a 24/7/365 basis. Having the Chamber available gives divers in Southern California waters a vital safety net in the event of a diving accident.

The Chamber’s contract from LA County provides a little over 50 percent of the Chamber’s annual budget needs. The annual Chamber Day contributions from divers, clubs, shops, manufacturers, organizations, publications and dive boat operators provide a significant portion of the remaining budget.

These funds go to covering transportation of Chamber Volunteers to and from the mainland, treatment gas, equipment purchases, maintenance, and repairs.
