3Damage Control is an ALL HANDS responsibility! ImportanceUSS StarkDamage Control is an ALL HANDS responsibility!
4Purpose of Damage Control Take all practical preliminary measures to prevent damage.Minimize and localize damage as it occurs.Accomplish emergency repairs as quickly as possible, restore equipment to operation, and care for injured personnel.The ships ability to perform it’s mission will depend on Damage Control effectiveness!
5Watertight IntegrityA ships ability to resist flooding.

9Types of Watertight Doors Watertight doors with individual dogs.
10Types of Watertight Doors Quick-acting Watertight Door
11Types of Watertight Doors Bolted Hatch with Escape Scuttle
12Material Conditions of Readiness Purpose: Provides different degree of water-tightness and protection for the shipHas three degrees of readiness:XYZ
13X X-Ray Classification Provides least amount of protection. Condition set in well protected harbors.Condition set at home during normal working hours.
14Y Yoke Classification Offers moderate amount of protection. Condition set at sea.Condition set in port outside of regular working hours.
15Z Zebra Classification Provides maximum protection during battle. Condition set for fire or flooding.Condition set when entering or leaving port in wartime.All open watertight doors must be guarded.Z
16Damage Control Classifications Special use classification for specific fittings on the ship:Six different classifications:WWYDZZX
17Circle William Classification Applied to ventilation fittings and certain access openings.Normally open in all material conditions.Closed only to prevent Chemical, Biological, or Radiological (CBR) contamination.W
18William Classification Applied to sea suction valves that supply water to condensers, fire pumps, and other equipment necessary for fire protection and mobility.Normally open and running.W
19Circle X-Ray/Yoke Classification Permits access to battle stations.Used for transfer of ammunition or are part of other vital systems.May be opened without special permission.Must be closed when not in use.XY
20Circle Zebra Classification May be opened during general quarters to allow preparation and distribution of food.Used for cooling vital spaces.Guards must be posted when open for quick closing.Z
21Dog Zebra Classification Applied to accesses on weather decks that are not equipped with light traps or door switches that turn off lights during darkened ship conditions.
24General Quarters Actions: All combat stations are manned. Purpose: Set conditions of the ship to full readiness for battle.Actions:All combat stations are manned.Material Condition of Readiness set to ZEBRA.All repair parties are manned.
