POL SERVICES BRANCH
The POL services branch or section is often assigned as a part of the airfield services branch. This
section should be a separate branch with its own supervisor for better control. The branch or section
services aircraft, inspects and generally polices its facilities, and operates vehicles organic to the branch.
The branch or section includes an NCOIC, shift supervisors, and petroleum storage specialists.
a. Branch Chief. The branch chief is responsible to the operations sergeant for proper branch
operation. The chief supervises all assigned branch activities and prepares an SOP that delineates
responsibilities to support these activities. He ensures that personnel are properly instructed in their
assigned duties and that OJT is conducted. The branch chief also assigns personnel, ensures that duty
rosters and performance records are maintained, and conducts a daily inspection of the POL facilities.
b. Shift Supervisor. The shift supervisor conducts an inspection of the POL facilities at least once
during the shift. He supervises and trains assigned personnel in their duties. This supervisor also
coordinates with other branches concerning VIP, transient, and local aircraft refueling requirements.
c. Petroleum Storage Specialists (MOS 76W). These specialists provide refueling and other related
services for assigned and transient aircraft. They ensure that transient aviators complete DD Form 1898
(AVFUELS Into-Plane Contract Sales Slip). They also receive, store, and inspect all petroleum
products delivered to the storage area. These specialists ensure that adequate supplies of aviation fuels,
oils, and lubricants are on hand to meet current and emergency operation requirements. Petroleum
storage specialists perform operator maintenance on lines, tanks, pumps, and valves in the POL storage
area. They use all appropriate safety equipment as delineated in FM 10-68.
