Authenticate all NAVSUP Form 1250-1s
and 1250-2s generated during the BEEP.
Assign all final CESE condition codes.
Conduct a post-BEEP critique for ap-
propriate personnel of both battalions.
Prepare and submit a BEEP completion
report to COMCBPAC or COMCBLANT,
with copies to appropriate addresses.
KEEP IN MIND THAT SAFETY
WILL BE PARAMOUNT
THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BEEP
The repair parts portion of the BEEP will be
accomplished according to COMCBPAC/COM-
CBLANTINST 4400.3 series, appendix C.
As indicated in the name, mobility is a major
portion of the tasking of each Mobile Con-
struction Battalion. The battalion maintains a
staff that preplans for given situations. They work
with the air detachment, air echelon, and sea
echelon scheduling for ships or planes. The
embarkation staff determines and adjusts load
requirements to fit the type of units doing the
transporting. As a CM1, you will be tasked to
communicate with the embark staff through your
chain of command. This communication will
include changes in types of equipment available,
deadlined units designated as air detachment or
air echelon, and parts requirements changes.
Scheduling of equipment through the shop
during embarkation depends on which equipment
is to be embarked, the number of mechanics
available, and time allowed. All equipment must
be thoroughly cleaned, and time must be allotted
for this operation. Air detachment equipment will
receive top priority. As a shop supervisor, you
will find that your input and knowledge of the
mechanics capabilities will be vitally important.
Equipment to be embarked should have minor
repairs accomplished before embarkation. These
units must be capable of operating for some time
without breakdown. Deadlined units on the sea
echelon may be repaired under way. Equipment
to be transported aboard aircraft will be delayed
if fuel, oil, and water leaks are not detected during
your inspection and corrected while in the shop.
Coordinated preplanned efforts between the
wash rack personnel, collateral
equipment, and Equipment Operators are es-
sential for a successful embark. All collateral
equipment has to accompany the unit for which
it was intended; spare tires have to be mounted.
Depending on the method of transporting, dump
truck headache boards need to be removed and
secured in the bed, tops removed, windshields put
down and taped, and exhaust stacks loosened. It
is often required that the buckets and counter-
weights of front-end loaders be removed. Detailed
data for each unit will be coordinated between the
embark staff and the transporting unit.
After the equipment has undergone the shop
requirements, it might need to be loaded with
designated equipment. All air-transported units
must be weighed and the center of balance marked
in the configuration in which it is to be loaded.
After this has been accomplished, it maybe staged
for convoy or movement in a place that is not
congested and does not interfere with continued
progress of equipment in process.
Often a convoy movement is required to reach
the transporting unit. This operation may be used
to arrange equipment in load-number order if it
was not done during the staging phase. Loading
and tie-down are normally under the directions
of the loadmaster of the aircraft or the boatswain
of the ship.
Materials required to operate a
maintenance organization are often toxic,
corrosive, explosive, or highly flammable.
These materials (paints, gases, acids, fuels,
