Presentation Transcript
objectives
Objectives
  • DC Actions & Reports
  • Classes of Fires & Combating them
  • Firefighting Systems & equipment
  • Flooding systems & equipment
general dc actions
General DC Actions
  • Rig spaces for casualty
  • Establish primary & secondary boundaries
  • Fight and control casualty with appropriate means
  • Localize casualty & stop flooding/extinguish fire
  • Restore systems to operation
  • Ventilate the affected spaces if necessary
flooding fire
Flooding & Fire
  • Must ensure restoration of vital services
    • Propulsion
    • Electrical power
    • Vital piping and machinery
  • Must always keep safety in mind -> NEVER try to be a one person DC party!!!
casualty dc reports
Casualty/DC Reports
  • Initial report
    • What casualty is & what system
    • Where casualty is -> be specific
  • Follow up report
    • Man in charge
    • Assistance required
    • Injured personnel
    • Damaged equipment
    • Status of casualty
  • Keep DC Central informed!!! allows for proper organization of damage control efforts

fires

heat

oxygen

fuel

Fires
  • Elements of the fire triangle
    • Heat
    • Oxygen
    • Fuel
  • Classes of fires
    • Alfa: wood, paper (leaves ash)
    • Bravo: fuel, oil (flammable liquids)
    • Charlie: electrical
    • Delta: combustible metals (Mg, Na, Ti)
  • Safety concerns: smoke, toxic gases, heat, explosion
extinguishing agents
Extinguishing Agents
  • Alpha: water (firemain, sprinklers)
    • Removes heat
    • CO2 also acceptable for small fires
  • Bravo: AFFF, PKP, HALON
    • Smothers fire
  • Charlie: CO2 (portable, installed)
    • Displaces Oxygen
  • Delta: water
    • Solid stream, fog
    • Jettison
firefighting equipment
Firefighting Equipment
  • Firemain system
    • Receives water from sea & distributes to hoses and sprinklers
    • Several types of construction
      • Single Main (small ships)
      • Horizontal Loop
      • Vertical Loop
  • Sprinkler systems
    • Installed in magazines, turrets, weapons rooms
    • Can be manual or automatic
firefighting equipment9
Firefighting Equipment
  • All-purpose nozzle
    • Solid stream
    • High-velocity fog
    • Low-velocity fog (rotate nozzle)
  • Hoses
    • Standard
      • 50’ or 100’ lengths
      • 1.5” diameter
    • Collapsible
firefighting equipment10
Firefighting Equipment
  • Foam equipment
    • AFFF - Aqueous film-forming foam
    • Used for Class B (smothers fire)
  • Portable extinguishers
    • CO2: Class C or small Class A/B
    • AFFF: Class A or B fires
    • PKP: Class B fires (dry chemicals)
firefighting equipment11
Firefighting Equipment
  • Oxygen Breathing Apparatus (OBA)
    • Self-contained breathing protection
    • Generates its own oxygen
    • Provides 30-45 minutes of air/canister
  • Emergency Exit Breathing Device (EEBD)
    • Self-contained
    • Provides 15 minutes of oxygen to allow for escape
  • Emergency Air Breathing (EAB)
    • Breathing device that plugs into ship’s air
    • Essentially unlimited air supply
    • Must unplug/replug each time you move
firefighting equipment12
Firefighting Equipment
  • Naval Firefighting Thermal Imager (NFTI)
    • Battery-powered thermal imaging device
    • Provides “sight” in poor visibility (smoke)
    • Provides indication of hot spots
  • Fire Fighting Ensemble (FFE)
    • Flame/heat retardant
    • Full-body suit to prevent exposed skin
    • Worn in conjunction with OBA
flooding
Flooding
  • Can occur for a number of reasons
    • Missile / Torpedo hit
    • Damaged piping
    • Running aground
  • Must not only stop flooding but also remove water that has entered ship
    • Drain system used
    • Portable submersible pumps used
  • Repair leak & structural damage
    • Use shoring, wedge, shole, strongback etc.
flooding actions
Flooding Actions
  • Identify flooding location
  • Stop / Limit flooding
  • Establish boundaries
    • Water tight bulkheads
    • Piping system
  • Repair: shoring, patching, plugging
  • Dewater Spaces
  • Restore vital systems / equipment
priority of dewatering
Priority of Dewatering
  • Spaces where damage cannot be repaired?
  • Stability (List / Trim)
  • Equipment:
    • P-250 pump
    • Electric submersible pump
    • Eductor
safety precautions during damage control operations
Safety Precautions During Damage Control Operations
  • Flashburn
  • Electric Shock
  • Exploding Ordnance / Fuel
  • Heat Stress
  • Overcome by smoke / CO2
  • Loss of lighting / Trip hazards
