effect.  It  also  may  serve  as  the  ship’s  Supply  Support Center  (SSC),  if  established.  It  may  contain  the  stock records  and  those  publication  files,  and  other  records which   the   supply   officer   considers   necessary   for effective  operations.  If  it  does  not  function  as  an  SSC, it  may  contain  locator/inventory  records. Bulk  Storerooms Bulk storerooms (for general stores) are spaces used for the stowage of case lots of frequently demanded items maintained (in smaller quantities) in an issue storeroom,   or   for   items   that   are   too   bulky   and cumbersome   for   stowage   in   an   issue   storeroom. Storekeepers   assigned   to   bulk   storerooms   are responsible  to  the  leading  storeroom  Storekeeper,  who normally is assigned to the main issue storeroom. Repair Parts Storerooms Supply department storerooms are used for the stowage  of  repair  parts  except  bulkhead  mounted spares and certain other materials authorized to be stowed  in  other  departmental  spaces.  Although  SIM, shelf-life,  and  certain  other  repair  parts  generally  are stowed in the main issue storeroom, most repair parts in  supply  department  custody  normally  are  located  in spaces designated as repair parts storerooms. They are usually outfitted with bins, drawer cabinets, and other stowage  aids.  When  required,  or  when  available  near the   operating   spaces   to   be   supported,   separate storerooms will be used for stowage of electronic repair parts,   hull/mechanical/electrical   (HM&E)   and ordnance repair parts, nuclear weapons repair pads, reactor plant repair parts, etc. HAZARDOUS  MATERIAL  STOREROOMS AND LOCKERS Certain   materials   with   inherent   hazardous properties   require   special   stowage   facilities   and handling   precautions. The Naval  Ships’   Technical Manual  and the  Hazardous   Material   Information System outline  the  requirements  for  shipboard  stowage of   dangerous   and   semisafe   materials.   Shipboard stowage   facilities   commonly   used   for   hazardous general  stores  items  are  discussed  in  the  following subparagraphs. Flammable Liquids Storeroom The  flammable  liquids  storeroom  normally  will  be located at either end of the ship, below the full load waterline, not adjacent to a magazine and be equipped with an automatic fire alarm and system. This storeroom  also  should  have  incandescent  and  explosion proof  overhead  lights  (protected  by  lamp  guards).  The switch   should   be   outside   the   compartment,   and nonsparking vent fans, with the controllers outside the compartment. ACID LOCKER.—  An  acid  locker  is  a  leakproof, led-lined box, chest, or locker especially designed for stowing  bottles  or  carboys  of  acid.  A  label  bearing  the inscription  “ACID  BOTTLE  STOWAGE  in  3/8-inch letters  must  be  securely  attached  to  the  lid  of  each  acid locker.  Acid  lockers  will  be  kept  in  the  flammable liquids   storeroom. However,   acid   lockers   which contain only medical acids may be kept in a medical storeroom. ALCOHOL  LOCKER.—  An alcohol locker is a chest  or  locker  used  for  security  stowage  of  grain alcohols which are highly susceptible to pilferage (i.e., ethanol  or  ethyl  alcohol).  Alcohol  lockers  will  be located  in  the  flammable  liquids  storemom.  However, lockers  that  contain  only  medicinal  alcohol  (100  proof or less) may be located in any secure space designated by  the  commanding  officer. MATERIALS  REQUIRING  SPECIAL HANDLING OR STOWAGE We will first consider the classifications of material and  then  discuss  the  special  handling  or  storage requirements for special types of material that are carried for ship’s use. Requirements for cargo stowage are  not  covered  because  the  types  of  cargo  and  ship’s characteristics  vary  and  must  be  considered  on  an individual  basis. Acid Liquid acid, unless classified as safe material in the Naval  Ships’  Technical  Manual,  will  be  stowed  in  au acid  locker.  If  an  acid  locker  is  not  available,  acid bottles   will   be   stowed   in   the   flammable   liquids storeroom. But in this case, the deck and the lower part of the bulkhead must be covered with a watertight robber lining and a label inscribed “ACID BOTTLE STOWAGE”  in  3/8-inch  letters  must  be  securely attached to the outside of the storeroom door. Corrosive acids  are  acute  fire  hazards  and  should  be  stowed separately  from  oxidizing  or  flammable  materials. Corrosive acids (or vapors) must not be allowed to come in contact with the skin or eyes. Storekeeper who stow or issue these acids will wear rubber gloves rubber 6-10
