Shipboard Damage Control Equipment Allowance Lists (AEL) User's Guidance

Reading and understanding the Fleet Damage Control AELs can be very difficult at times for the Damage Control organization. The AELs, DC-OSIMS software, and the Booklets are used together to enhance and maintain fleet shipboard damage control standardization and readiness. The key to success in battle or casualty response is the day to day preparation, inventory, maintenance, and training done in the damage control spaces. The DC AEL User's Guidance was developed to help provide guidance, assistance, and tips to personnel tasked with maintaining DC Space Equipment in an easy to understand format.

The Shipboard Damage Control Equipment Allowance Lists (AEL) User's Guidance provides information for the damage control shipboard organization on how to understand and use the Damage Control AELs. This booklet can either be downloaded completely or can be downloaded and viewed as the parts listed below.
