GENERAL DESIGN INFORMATION
OPERATIONAL CAPABILITIES. Design fuel facilities
for continued operation using emergency or temporary
expedients despite the loss of one or more components of the
fuel receiving and/or dispensing system by enemy action or
other factors. For tactical or mission-related fuel
facilities, provide an alternative source of fuel supply to
the fuel facility to ensure emergency operation under the most
adverse conditions, including back-up power (emergency
generators). Maintain consistency with prescribed criteria in
appropriate directives, instructions, and standard designs
(including NATO Standards).
