9. In the event I become distressed at the surface, I will immediately drop my weights/weight belt and inflate my Buoyancy Control Device. I understand and will give the proper “diver in trouble” signal to receive assistance by the vessel, captain or crew. I fully understand that this activity may be conducted in a remote site by time and distance from a medical facility and hyperbaric chamber.
