procedures to provide rapid restoration of mission critical facilities in wartime. The emphasis
is on techniques for quick temporary repair actions or utilization of alternate utility sources
(Stand-Alone Systems) for immediate restoration of services. Expedient repairs are to be
performed primarily by the Naval Construction Force (NCF) personnel, although the technology
is also within the capabilities of station public works organizations.
