    Cave Diving Fatalities Monitoring and Prevention- TEKDiveUSA.2018
    This presentation will be featured at TEKDiveUSA.2018 by Peter Buzzacott. In 1979 Sheck Exley wrote “Blueprint for Survival” in which he used revised reports of cave diving fatalities to highlight common hazards the divers of that era faced when diving in caves. Since then the number of deaths each year in US caves has fallen steadily, and we appear to have come a long way in terms of safety. But, every death is a tragedy and work must continue to make cave diving even incrementally safer. This presentation will cover the history of cave diving fatality monitoring and prevention, a description of the current status and consider potential initiatives for the future. See a few more of the presentations planned for TEKDiveUSA HERE.

    Join Paul Toomer, co-owner of Dive RAID International at TEKDiveUSA.2018. His presentation "Real Life Rescue" will be an open and honest account of exactly what happens during a diver rescue. Recently, Paul had the unenviable task of assisting in the rescue of a drowned rebreather diver. Although the event was extremely harrowing for all involved, the outcome was positive. "Real Life Rescue" will take TEKDiveUSA.2018 attendees through the errors made leading up to the event and Paul will also look at how we can learn from the event and use the information to benefit diver safety in the future.

    LONG-RANGE CAVE EXPLORATION IN THE SUWANNEE RIVER BASIN- TEKDIVEUSA.2018
    Join Karst Underwater Research (KUR) divers Charlie Roberson and Jon Bernot at TEKDiveUSA.2018 for a discussion of their ongoing exploration of the Falmouth-Cathedral and Lineater cave systems. These twin but so far unconnected cave systems have lived up to their challenging reputations and world-record history. In 2016, Jon and Charlie set a new world record for penetration in an underwater cave at 8,208 m / 26,930 ft in the Falmouth-Cathedral system. This year, KUR has focused its exploration efforts on Lineater, where the penetration is currently 7,065 m / 21,194 ft. The long distances and often poor conditions in these systems present unique logistical challenges for exploration.
