Our final letter is Z for Condition Zebra, as seen on a watertight door on #USCGCTaney
ZEBRA provides the greatest degree of subdivision and watertight integrity to the ship. It is the maximum state of readiness for the ship’s survivability system. Condition ZEBRA is set when the following situations occur: when General Quarters are sounded, when entering or leaving port in wartime, to localize damage and control fire and flooding when the crew is not at General Quarters, or at any time the CO deems the maximum condition of survivability should be set. All fittings marked with X or Y, Circle X, Circle Y,Z, Circle Z, and DOG Zs are closed when condition ZEBRA is set.
