American industry expended substantial cost for fire protection, fire prevention programs, first-aid facilities, and industrial safety programs. these expenditures grow out of proper recognition of the economic necessity to minimize loss caused by disasters such as fire, flood, explosion, etc. There is, however, the general lack of a program which pre-assigns 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 utilize these 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 present 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.
