(2) throw the marker over the side. The tear tape must be removed before throwing over the side. This allows the seawater to activate the battery to start the process of igniting the pyrotechnic candle. If the ship is fueling and highly volatile fuel such as gasoline or jet fuel is in the water, or if under darkened ship condition, do not use a smoke float or flare. SHIP PROCEDURES Every  underway  watch  is  organized  to  handle  the man-overboard   emergency.   The   officer   of   the   deck, upon   receipt   of   information   of   a   man    overboard, maneuvers the ship according to prescribed doctrine to reach a recovery position. The OOD has the following word   passed   twice:   “MAN   OVERBOARD   PORT (STARBOARD)  SIDE.  SECTION(S)  1,  (2,  3,)  MAN THE  RESCUE  DETAIL.”  The  OOD  also  announces whether the recovery will be made by boat or whether it  is  to  be  made  with  the  ship.  Further,  the  ship  will sound six or more short blasts on the whistle and,  by day, break flag OSCAR. By night (in peacetime)  two pulsating   red  lights  are  displayed   vertically   or   one white rocket (or one white marine illumination signal) is fired. In addition, the officer of the deck notifies the ships in company and the officer in tactical command (OTC)   and   informs   the   commanding   officer,   the executive   officer,   the   navigator,   and   the   flag   duty officer   when   embarked.   The   OOD   keeps   the   deck recovery  detail  informed  of  the  recovery  side  of  the ship.  Searchlights  must  be  used  with  care  and  only when  directed  by  the  OOD   because   premature   use might  impair  the  night  vision  of  the  OOD  and  the lookouts. 31
