used to reduce blast damage. Dispersion of packaged supplies limits and keeps under control fires that start
as a result of a nuclear explosion. Care is taken to keep combustible materials to a minimum in and around
petroleum supply installations.
Demolition. Demolition is a command responsibility. It is performed only as a last resort and only to
prevent supplies and equipment from falling into enemy hands. Except in emergencies, demolition is
performed only on orders from higher headquarters. Unless otherwise specified, petroleum stocks are
destroyed by burning.
PART C - ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS
Supply and storage facilities often contain HM. You must take precautions when storing and transporting
these materials. Keep a copy of the applicable MSDS for each HM on hand in a binder in the storage area.
You can support your installation's environmental goals in supply areas by doing the following:
Compliance. Store materials according to the manufacturer's guidelines, as stated on the MSDS.
Prevention. Reduce the amount of solid wastes and HW in the supply room by avoiding stockpiling or
keeping items around "just in case they are needed." Reuse containers whenever possible. Recycle
materials as required by your installation's recycling program.
Conservation. Dispose of all solid wastes and HW according to local policy.
PART D - PMCS
Emergency Tank Repair. If any of the collapsible tanks develop a leak, repair them at once with
emergency repair items (Figure 3-2 and Figure 3-3). There are two methods of repair: one uses sealing
plugs (Figure. 3-4) and one uses sealing clamps (Figure 3-5). The one you use depends on the size of the
rupture. Use a sealing plug if the hole in the tank is 3/8 of an inch or smaller. Use a sealing clamp if the
hole is larger than 3/8 of an inch. Whatever method you use, ensure you put on rubber gloves and the
protective hood before
starting the repair operation.
