    Would a safety/emergency forum be useful in dive central? Non-tourist dive briefs have a heavy emergency response component, yet gear or discussion for that does not have a central home on the board, such as PLB/PAL, strobe, O2 kits, First Aid kits, etc.

    Community knowledge on safety or emergency response is spread across a few forums. Several gear related ones cover cutting, lights, DSBM. Some of that is normal dive use. Medical covers some of the O2/first aid.

    Safety/Emergency might get cutting tools and DSBM as sub forums. Thought much of the line and spool part of DSBM/lift bags is normal dive not emergency. The lights forum seems mostly normal dive use.

    There would be some blurring between safety/emergency and A/I and lessons learned. My thought is divers going to safety/emergency for current knowledge, while A/I LL are where that knowledge is expanded and refined.

    Just an idea, and I may have missed elements in the board organization.
