Accept risks? No Phil, you're dead wrong...

Re: "As divers we know of the inherent risks of this sport and we choose to accept those risks to enjoy something we like to do"  Phil

You should be ashamed of yourself Phil--never teach your students "to accept risks". Enjoying the sport means diving safely.  Diving safely means doing certain things to minimize the inherent risks. You can choose to "accept" the risks of diving at an offshore deep site like the Oriskany even though it is clear the emergency support for bent divers is not adequate.  I choose not to accept that level of risk.  Don't insult me by suggesting that means I would only go diving next to a hospital or Coast Guard station. I mean what I said: I would not go diving at the Oriskany because 1) it's a deep dive at a remote offshore site and 2) the emergency support for bent divers is not adequate.
