Q2. What is the most available heat-removing agent for shipboard use? Q3.   AFFF  was  developed  to  combat  what  class  of fire? Q4.CO2 is  the  primary  agent  to  disrupt  the  fire triangle of what class fire? Q5.   What is an effective agent against a class D fire? DAMAGE CONTROL EQUIPMENT Learning Objective: When you finish this chapter, you will be able to— Identify  the  portable  equipment  and  fixed systems that make up the shipboard inventory of protection equipment. As you’ve learned in this chapter, damage control is an all hands job. The time it takes to get a fire or flooding under control is vital. You should become familiar with the portable equipment and fixed systems that make up your ship inventory of protection equipment. Because of  the  large  amount  of  explosives,  fuels,  and  other flammable materials aboard ship, you must know where equipment  is  located  and  how  to  use  it  before  an emergency exists. Knowing  where  equipment  is  and  how  to  use  it applies not only to firefighting equipment but also the equipment  used  for  flooding  or  CBR  protection.  The equipment and its storage location varies from ship to ship, so you must know your ship. You may find yourself the first person on the scene, so  knowing  the  basic  rules  of  damage  control  and equipment usage may make the difference in the loss of many spaces or a shipmate’s life. Perhaps you will be called to serve on a fire party or flooding detail. As a team member, keep in mind, the lack of equipment and procedures could result in a disastrous outcome. Figures 12-10 through 12-15 show some examples of  the  equipment  that’s  common  to  all  ships.  These figures show only a small amount of what you’ll find in a ship’s repair locker. THE FIREFIGHTER ENSEMBLE The  firefighter’s  ensemble  (fig.  12-10)  is  used  to protect the firefighter from short duration flame (flash) exposure, heat, and falling debris. 12-23 Student Notes: Figure 12-10.—Firefighter’s ensemble.
