Abstract : American industry expends substantial sums for fire protection, fire prevention programs, first-aid facilities, and industrial safety programs. There is, however, the general lack of a program which preassigns specific responsibilities to employees, upon the occurrence of an emergency situation, which could reduce significantly the extent of damage. The purpose of this paper is to present a model industrial disaster control plan which was developed for use at the Overhaul and Repair Facility, Naval Air Station, Jacksonville, Florida, and which utilizes those techniques heretofore applied primarily by shipboard Damage Control organizations. The industrial manager alone can decide whether a similar application of Damage Control principles within his organization can be beneficial. To facilitate the making of this decision, a cost equation for use in computing plan implementation costs is provided. Further, the paper presents a method of approach, involving simulation techniques, for individual company assessment of the potential value of plan installation in addition to the benefit derived by reduction of actual physical loss.
