Standard Practice for Preparing Shipboard Fire Control Plans (Withdrawn 2008)


1.1 This practice sets forth the symbols to be used in shipboard fire control plans.

Significance and Use

The fire control plan is a set of general arrangement plans for each deck of the ship that contains information that will be of use to the ship’crew and shoreside fire fighters in the event of a fire. Experience has shown that in casualties involving fire, one of the most valuable assets on the ship is the fire control plan. Most of the information the ship’crew and shoreside fire fighting personnel would need, such as general layout and dimensions, fire fighting systems, and other systems that have a direct impact on fire fighting, are included in the fire control plan. The fire control plan is also ideal for firefighters and marine inspectors to use as a guide when taking tours on ships, since it contains the location of most items they will be looking for. In addition, having a consistent set of standard fire control plan symbols will eliminate the need for shoreside fire fighting personnel to know each ship’respective fire control plan symbols.
