Sailors conduct damage control training
Several Sailors from Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic Washington perform pipe patching training during a simulated drill at Navy Operational Support Center Baltimore Oct. 7. The team of Sailors from FRC Mid-Atlantic received instruction on damage control procedures at the Damage Control Engineering Test Facility complex in Baltimore. The facility provides the Navy with a flexible, cost-effective facility to simulate and evaluate ship structure, equipment and procedures in multiple damage conditions. The simulated procedures and damage conditions include gaining compartment access, investigation, flooding, pipe damage, hull damage, cable damage, personnel tracking and rescue, smoke spread, emergency communications and plotting.
