During the past 43 years the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber has been dedicated to the treatment of diving accidents on a 24/7/365 basis. Having our Chamber available gives divers in Southern California waters a vital safety net in the event of a diving accident.

The Chamber’s contract from LA County provides about 50% of the Chamber’s annual budget needs. Our annual Chamber Day contributions from divers, clubs, shops, manufacturers, organizations, publications and dive boat operators provides an essential portion of the remaining budget.

These funds go to covering transportation of Chamber Volunteers to and from the mainland, treatment gases, equipment purchases, maintenance, and repairs. For more information on how you can be involved in Chamber Day and Chamber Evening 2017, visit the Chamber Day web site at or call 310-652-4990.

Thank you for your support
