Close To Home: The George Washington Fire

Cross posted from

I should be in bed after Drinking Right, but checking through my RSS reader tonight I noticed this entry over at Information Dissemination in discussing further updates on the GW fire.

Galrahn includes a photo embed which I will include here. What is NOTABLE here is that this confirms what I have suspected all along about this incident…..that it affected ADP, or Automated Data Processing, the space I worked in onboard Theodore Roosevelt in my days in the Navy. This compartment is not large, and if they haven’t modified the design from previous incarnations in other Nimitz class carriers it has a main area for the data processing facility with that one vent room and office spaces off of the data processing facility more towards the bow.

Hope they had time to save backup tapes or stored them in another part of the ship for Disaster Recover purposes.

Additional photos can be viewed in another ID post here.
