Home : Home : SUPSALV : ESSM : Location

There are two ESSM bases located within the Continental United States. Both bases carry essentially the same allowance of material, which includes a complete inventory of ship salvage, pollution control, and underwater ship husbandry equipment. All material is stored and maintained in ready-for-issue condition by a commercially contracted manager and support personnel. The Supervisor of Salvage (00C) controls all issuance of ESSM base material. CONUS facilities are:

ESSM Facilities Outside CONUS

Presently, there are six ESSM facilities located outside the Continental United States. Their inventories include limited quantities of ship salvage material and pollution control equipment, and are intended for short-term emergency use. This material is stored in ready-for-issue condition and in a low level of preservation. 

Salvage and pollution response systems available at each base can be found here. More details can be found on SUPSALV's CAC enabled website https://secure.supsalv.org

ESSM Alaska and ESSM Hawaii are manned facilities. Contact numbers below connect you directly to the facility managers. ESSMs Italy, Bahrain, Singapore and Japan are unmanned facilities. Equipment is not afforded the caretaker status associated with ESSM facilities in CONUS. The Supervisor of Salvage (SEA00C) controls all issuance of ESSM facility material. The contact numbers associated with these facilities represent the organization holding the keys to the warehouse. As stated above, SUPSALV should be contacted if equipment is needed.
