and  security  tasks  are  regularly  and  properly performed. Cleanliness  and  Orderliness Cleanliness and orderliness are important to proper   storeroom   maintenance,   the   efficient storage and issue of materials, and the safety of your personnel. The supply officer or you, as the leading  SK,  should  make  sure  your  storeroom  per- sonnel  are  taught  good  housekeeping  practices, and  they  conduct  a  field  day  in  their  respective spaces  before  each  scheduled  zone  inspection. They  should  pay  attention  to  bins,  shelves, ventilation outlets, any overhead ledges, and also to deck areas partially blocked by stores, bins, or racks. Before securing the storerooms at the end of each workday, the decks should be swept; all cleaning materials, tools, and loose gear put away; the lights turned off; and all trash removed and disposed  of. Material  Condition  of  Spaces and Fixtures The material condition of storage spaces (and of  any  installed  electrical  fixtures,  ventilation ducts,  steam  or  water  pipes,  valves,  watertight  fit- tings,  bins,  or  racks)  should  be  checked  daily either by you or the SKs in charge of these spaces. The supply officer or a representative should in- spect  these  same  spaces  at  least  weekly.  Your storage spaces should also be regularly inspected by  your  departmental  or  work  center  damage  con- trol petty officer (DCPO). The DCPO is primarily responsible for checking the watertight integrity and  damage  control  equipment  such  as  battle lanterns,  fire  extinguishers,  and  fire  hoses,  just to  name  a  few.  Any  deficiencies  that  are  noted by  the  SK  in  charge  or  the  DCPO  should  be promptly  reported  to  you  or  the  supply  officer. You  should  then  request  the  department  head (usually  the  engineer  officer)  to  have  the  deficien- cies  inspected  and  corrected.  SKs  in  charge  should be  present  during  inspections  and  repairs  in  their respective  storerooms.  Upon  completion  of  jobs, they should promptly notify you so that you can inspect  the  work  and  notify  the  supply  officer. Improvements of Spaces and Equipment When  the  SK  in  charge  of  a  storeroom  con- siders that structural alterations or the installa- tion or modification of storage aids is necessary or desirable, he or she should submit recommen- dations  to  the  supply  officer  via  the  chain  of command.  If  the  recommended  changes  can substantially increase efficiency, material protec- tion,  or  safety,  the  supply  officer  should  submit a  work  request  or  other  actions  as  may  be necessary  to  effect  the  improvements. Storage of Personal Gear Supply personnel love to store their personal gear   in   either   their   work   spaces   or   in   the storerooms.  There  should  not  be  any  personal gear (no matter whose it is) stored in any supply department  spaces  without  written  permission from   the   commanding   officer. Daily Report of Security Each  day  after  the  storerooms  have  been secured, the duty SK should report their security to   the   supply   duty   officer.   Departmental security  reports,  to  the  command  duty  officer, should be made at the time specified in the ship’s plan of the day. If the storerooms are not secured by the time departmental reports are made, the command  duty  officer  should  be  advised  of  the reason  why  and  when  they  will  be  secured. Securing for Sea Upon  notification  that  you  are  preparing  to get  underway,  the  storeroom  personnel  should start  the  day  securing  all  the  storerooms  and equipment.  When  all  supply  department  spaces have  been  properly  secured,  you  should  notify  the supply officer that every space is ready for sea. The  supply  officer  should  then  make  his  or  her departmental readiness for sea report to the of- ficer  of  the  deck. UNDERWAY   REPLENISHMENT Underway replenishment is the art and science of supplying ships at sea with fuel and stores. This maneuver,  one  of  the  major  achievements  of  Navy supply  and  logistics,  involves  techniques developed  within  comparatively  recent  times  that are  still  undergoing  refinement. The  merits  of  underway  replenishment  are such that its use has become commonplace, and it is now difficult for supply personnel to conceive of  conditions  in  which  it  is  necessary  for  a  ship to  return  to  port  to  take  on  needed  fuel  and supplies. 7-7
