      Gary Young shared a plea on Facebook regarding the plight of Eric Pomponi, who has a MAJOR medical problem. There is a link to a fund raising site. PLEASE contribute on the GoFundMe site!

      This and other divers' situations prompts me to again put forward the suggestion that ALL of us should be protecting our futures. Too often a person cannot have the financial assets to meet emergency needs. As a profession, we can amass a Fund which can at least help when one of our colleagues must deal with health issues.

    PLEASE speak out in favor of a monthly contribution to such a fund with the DA. We CAN make a difference! If YOU were stricken by accident or disease tomorrow could you cover all the expenses? Even with good insurance coverage it can be a real burden for the afflicted and their dependents.

    There has been little response endorsing the idea of such monthly contributions and I am inclined to think that we tend to be focused on our personal goals. Divers helping divers is the best shot at GETTING help when need arises... so RISE UP! Make known your willingness to make a small contribution monthly. With 1000 members putting $10 / month into such a fund, we can help many in need!

    • Looks like they are definitely still in business. I can't understand how a company like this can kill a diver and just shut their eyes and go on about business. They know that the only way to stop these stupid accidents from happening is to come forth with details, yet they circle the wagons and cover everything up. So the next time when the same thing happens, these people are equally at fault. Then I have to wonder - where is IMCA in this? Why did they not investigate and release findings to avoid a repeat of this?
    • This is their web page talking it say theyhave contracts https://www.mammoet.com/en/news/
    • I would push to have the Labour Board examine NS Power's role in the incident. You will note I did not call it an accident, because in my opinion it was not.
