In-Port Emergency Team (IET) In-port  emergency  teams  are  made  up  of  duty section personnel. IET members are emergency team member qualified and stand ready to respond to any type of casualty. At times, it may be necessary to provide additional personnel  and  material  support  to  the  IET.  These additional personnel come from a pool of excess duty personnel and assemble at a designated location. They can assist in setting fire or flooding boundaries and are available to back up the primary IET, if needed. Rescue and Assistance (In Port/At Sea) All  ships  are  required  to  have  a  rescue  and assistance  detail  in  port  and  at  sea.  The  primary missions of this detail are to rescue personnel at sea, assist another unit in distress, and assist persons or activities in distress ashore. All personnel assigned to the rescue and assistance detail must, as a minimum, be qualified as an emergency team member and in first aid. Rapid Response Team When  in  port  or  under  way,  each  ship  has  a designated rapid response team. This team proceeds directly to the scene when a fire or flooding is called away.  The  team  attempts  to  quickly  extinguish  or contain the fire or minimize or stop a flooding. At a minimum,  this  team  is  made  up  of  four  personnel qualified  as  fire  team  members  and  the  ship’s  fire marshal.  Because  immediate  response  is  required, protective clothing or OBAs aren’t donned. If they are unable to gain control of the casualty within a preset time frame, a full IET or GQ team relieves them and takes over. General Quarters (GQ) General quarters is an all hands evolution. It is the highest state of readiness of the ship, and all repair lockers  are  manned  and  fully  equipped  to  combat casualties. When responding to GQ, all hands adjust their clothing to battle dress and proceed to their GQ stations. Battle dress—Bottom of pants tucked into boots or socks,  long  sleeves  pulled  down  and  buttoned,  top button on shirt buttoned, and flash hood and gloves donned. All exposed skin covered. GQ route—Move forward in passageways and up ladders on starboard side, move aft in passageways and down ladders on port side. Since all hands will be moving at the same time, you have to move with the flow of traffic. DAMAGE CONTROL LOCKERS The equipment and materials required for making battle damage repairs vary according to the nature of the damage. Since many different kinds of damage can occur aboard ship, you must know how to use a variety of equipment and materials. Checks  should  be  made  to  see  that  all  damage control equipment tools and materials on the allowance list  are  actually  on  board  and  in  working  order. Comparing the ship’s allowance list with an accurate and up-to-date inventory of onboard damage control equipment does that. Damage control equipment should be stowed or installed  in  its  designated  location  and  be  readily accessible. Emergencies can be handled much more effectively if equipment is available than if you have to waste time looking for it. Damage control equipment must not be used for any  purpose  other  than  damage  control.  Because damage control equipment is located throughout the ship, some people are tempted to use it merely because it is handy. That must not be allowed. It is important to make all hands realize their lives may literally depend on the ready availability of damage control equipment if an emergency should arise.
