Underwater Council Of British Columbia: Dropped Weight Replacement Program.

The Underwater Council of British Columbia (UCBC) recently implemented a FREE weight replacement program for any diver who drops their weights in an emergency situation. Establishing positive buoyancy at the surface is one of the most important things you can do to survive a diving emergency. Please note the fine print:
"Requests to replace lost weights can only be accepted from certified divers who are current residents of British Columbia (proof required). Weight will be replaced at no cost to the individual but UCBC request consent to publish for educational purposes, a report detailing events and conditions that led to the emergency situation."
Please share this and help UCBC spread the word to all your buddies. More details about this program can be found at:
