US Navy not reporting many ship fires or learning lessons from them, GAO finds

Recommended Posts

Many fires that happen aboard Navy ships while they’re in port aren’t documented, leaving the service without an accurate idea of how widespread the problem is, a government watchdog agency found.

The reasons sailors aren’t noting fires vary, but a culture that discourages full compliance with reporting requirements was a factor, the Government Accountability Office said in a report released Thursday.
