Note: The US Navy put no restrictions on me about what I should say or how I should present what I learned on this trip. Other than making sure my footage was cleared for Operational Security, I am free to say whatever I want about this experience.
Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here: www.navy.com/
There are tons of interesting career opportunities out there that I never knew about:
The US Navy has several options such as engineer, pilot, submariner, logistics, accountant, medical doctor, and even Public Affairs specialist. I continue to be impressed by people that I meet who spent time in the Navy. I worked with various people during the course of filming this video and they were all top notch. www.navy.com/
Fire onboard a submarine is a big deal:

A huge thanks to the Navy for letting me film the series on board the USS Toledo. Matt did a great job of explaining how they handle fire and flooding on board. I just wanted to give a healthy shout out to everyone out there who should have recently received a Smarter Every Day baseball ⚾️ for supporting on Patreon. If you haven’t received a baseball yet, it is not too late. I made this page to explain the process: www.smartereveryday.com/baseball

How is the smoke handled? What kinda ventilation system is needed to get the air breathable again after a fire? Were you allowed to talk about that?

So you're not allowed to show the engine room. Is it because that's where the reactor is, or is it because of engine technology and stuff associated with manoeuvring in water?

Thanks for making this series. I was on Nuclear Subs back in the 80's on an older class than the 688. People always ask me what it was like and I always refer them to look for things on the internet to get some perspective. Things have changed a lot since back then. We did 6 hour watches when fully staffed and sometimes had to do 9 hour or 12 hour depending on situation. Drills were part of the process as the fire but their drill seemed minor compared to ours as everyone had to get up and get going. It was all in getting breathing protection out(which by the way, certainly tests EVERY piece of equipment) and knowing where to be and what you were doing. FYI...they have a bigger crews mess than we did. We did not have a "buffet" table LOL. But all in all this video series will give everyone that asks me as I refer to this what it's like being on a sub. The space is limited and there is equipment everywhere. Thanks again.

Great video! Would like to know how and where they exhaust the smoke from a fire? How long it takes to clear the smoke, etc.? I'm sure they have excellent air filtration on board.
Beth Gifford
Beth Gifford Před 2 dny
Two questions come to mind. How is smoke dealt with especially if the sub is submerged and secondly discharging a co2 extinguisher would release a lot of co2 into the space. I wonder if they then have to use co2 absorbing agents to quickly bring the levels down.

A real eye opener for people interested in space travel. I'd imagine the operation of a nuclear submarine is very similar to a space capsule, or the International Space Station. I never knew how tightly packed every critical system is. Thanks Destin. Fyi, I'm starting to second guess my dream of migrating to the Moon and Mars in 30 years time. But then again, I guess a person can adapt to just about any situation in the name of survival.

Perhaps the only worse place to have a fire in is on ISS/Mir.. Usually on a sub you at least might have a chance to surface and evacuate. Both terrible places for fire - in both you can just open a hatch to put it out, but everyone will, well, not survive.

Fixing pipes in a submerged submarine in the Arctic sounds like one of the fiddliest thing you could be made to do under the worst conditions. The closest i've come to anything like that is either sailor survival training in Icelandic sea in December, or adjusting a signal transmitter in Icelandic winter in freezing winds, and we're smack dab in the middle of the Gulf stream, so while we are technically Arctic i think, we've got much milder temperatures than the waters they're sailing in. I'd just beg that numbness happened soon so that i wouldn't feel like i'm on fire (FYI you from warmer climes, working bare handed in freezing temps can feel like you peeled the top layer of skin off your hand and stuck it into pure alcohol. And DO NOT put your hands in warm or hot water to warm up. That's like subsequently lighting that alcohol soaked wound on fire). When in freezing water, your body also freaks out, and you can completely lose control of your breathing, so you better keep your head above water for as much of it as you can. Good thing that those tools aren't fiddly. Hat's off to these gentlemen.

The SCBA bottles are made of kevlar wrap so extra light. They don't last 45 minutes (20 in a hyperventalating panic perhaps or heavy work) once you get that adrenaline going and too much noise you can miss the emergency low pressure whistle too - composure is the key to life sometimes just when it hardest thing to be.

I would think that the best way of fighting fire on a submarine is to suck all the air out from a section that is currently on fire. Where there’s no oxygen- there’s no fire. But then again all the crew would have to be inhumanly organized to be able to evacuate from that section fast enough.
