The smooth log contains all baseline data
(information about your system when it was first
installed) for all weapon systems on your specific ship.
It also contains the latest data on your weapons
systems, based on the most recent maintenance,
overhauls, or testing completed. This data consists of
information such as radiation cut-out zones for radar,
radar transmitter tests, system operability tests, pre-

What resources should you use to determine
what reports should be turned in for your ships

Many types of information sources apply to your
job. Use them. They may be periodicals (bulletins,
magazines, or messages), schematics, work-center
logs, instructions, or applicable modules in the Navy
Electricity and Electronic Training Series (NEETS).
You may also use individual command logs to keep an
accurate history of equipment performance and the
location of test equipment. New personnel may use the
various information sources to bring themselves
up-to-date on new procedures and troubleshooting
techniques. In addition, they may use the work centers
logbooks to learn the operating history of the
equipment they are assigned to maintain.
You may want to use technical periodicals to keep
current of any changes or policies affecting equipment
configuration and safety-related items. Periodicals
also contain important information that may affect you
as a Fire Controlman. Remember, however, that
most periodicals are only for informational

SHIPS SAFETY BULLETIN
The Ships Safety Bulletin is published quarterly
by the Naval Safety Center, Norfolk, Virginia. The
bulletins cover all aspects of safety information, from
electrical safety shoes to revisions of safety courses. If
your work center does not maintain copies of the Ships
Safety Bulletin, contact your ships Safety Officer to
get a copy so you can keep current on safety-related
items. These bulletins should be kept in hard binders in
chronological order, as they are filled with technical
and safety information that everyone in the shop
should have available for use. Figure 1-1 illustrates a
front cover of a Ships Safety Bulletin.
AFLOAT SAFETY ADVISORIES
Afloat safety advisories are in message format and
a d v i s e c o m m a n d s o f c u r r e n t a n d e m e r g e n t
safety-related items. Your command may obtain them
on a floppy disk from the Naval Safety Center.
