The Three-Pack

Every time we get underway, we have 48 hours to complete a series of three drills- man overboard, abandon ship, and main space fire. The purpose of this is to make sure everyone knows what to do in case of emergency. Newly reported personnel learn where to go in case of emergency, and all hands lay to their emergency billets. This requirement to complete three drills within the first 48 hours usually means that the first day underway is a long and busy one. Above, you can see a picture of SN Tyler Bolten dressed out as the cutter swimmer tender for the man overboard drill.
