authorized to dispense the products. Hoses to pumps will be secured. This will prevent loss of POL
through gravity feed.
d. POL tank trucks often contain fuel, and they are not always under surveillance of the operator.
Such trucks will be secured with a lock hatch cover or lock manifold access doors. Each manifold valve
may be secured with a transportation seal, if a manifold access door cannot be locked.
e. Fuel pods on vehicles and M561 (GOER) fuel vehicle tanks will be secured with padlocks. This
measure will be taken when the vehicles or tanks are carrying fuel. The measure will also be taken
when vehicles/tanks are not under the surveillance of the operator. Fuel-carrying vehicles will be
parked in lighted areas of airfields or motor pools. These areas will be protected by locked perimeter
barriers, or guards, when possible.
f. Tanker rail cars are sometimes spotted on post for unloading, and not under surveillance by
POL handlers. If these tankers carry POL products, special treatment is called for: dome covers and
manifold system shutoff valves will be locked. Railcars with packaged POL products aboard will be
secured by locking all doors.
g. Packaged POL products not on board a vehicle or rail car will also be safeguarded. One of the
following means will be used:
(1) In a structure meeting the standards in Appendix G at the end of this subcourse.
(a) Walls, floors, and ceiling will be built of at least 1/2-inch plywood, 1-inch tongue and
groove wallboards, or equivalent.
(b) Doors will afford comparable security as walls.
(c) All openings of 96 square inches or more will be protected by bars and grills. They may
be covered with chain link material instead.
(2) In an area protected by lighting and perimeter barriers in accordance with Appendix E at the
end of this subcourse.
(3) In an area protected by guards during hours the storage facility is nonoperational.
h. Written instructions must be sent to POL dispensing personnel at filling station operations and
Class III supply points. These instructions will include specific procedures for the following:
(1) Deciding if a customer is authorized.
(2) Deciding if drivers of military vehicles are licensed and the vehicles are properly dispatched.
