The September 2019 fire aboard the California dive boat Conception resulted in the loss of 34 lives and is ranked as the one of the worst maritime disasters in modern California history. Although the investigation continues, in the nine months since the fire, many factual details have come out but much misinformation has circulated as well. In this talk, Ken Kurtis – owner of Reef Seekers Dive Co. in Beverly Hills and a consultant/investigator on scuba fatalities – will go over what we believe to be true, what we know not to be true, what we don’t know, and what we can learn from all of this. Such areas as the timeline of events, Coast Guard and federal regulations will all be discussed. As time permits, a Q&A session will follow the presentation.
These free Scuba Show sessions will air live over the weekend of the cancelled Scuba Show, May 30-31, 2020. Sessions will be recorded and available on demand.
