Crane Services Policy for Base Seattle

Crane services at Base Seattle are usually handled by members of the Maintenance Branch of the Facilities Engineering Division.

The policy for requesting a crane is as follows:

1) Notify Assistant Facilities Engineer (AFE) AT LEAST 48 hours in advance.  This is important so that the scheduler can identify potential conflicts between customer needs.  Emergencies will be handled on a case-by-case basis; however, you may be required to rent a crane.  Bottom line: plan ahead.

2)  Notification should be done by email.  Customers should address the date and time they would like a crane, the type of work they would like done (and, if possible, the approximate weight of the load), and a point of contact and that POC’s phone number in case the scheduler or crane operator have any questions.  Send this email to AFE, LT Parga.

3) Base Seattle cannot provide crane services to contractors or as long as a contract states that the contractor will provide a crane.

Please address any questions or concerns to Assistant Facilities Engineer (AFE).

Forklift Training Policy for Base Seattle

Forklift training classes are held once a month by Mr. Frank Ridep and Mr. Mike Malomay in the FE lunchroom in Building 3 at Base Seattle.

If you have anyone at your unit who you wish to attend, please email Assistant Facilities Engineer (AFE), LT Parga to register for Forklift training.  Please provide the unit to which the member is attached, the rate, and both first and last names.

There are only 8 spots per class, and they usually fill up quickly.  If there is a significant response to get people qualified beyond the capacity of scheduled dates, AFE will try to accommodate by scheduling additional class dates.

Classes start at 0700 and last until approximately 1600.  The certification is good for 3 years.  The people who will be attending the class should come by the FE area and pick up a Forklift training book a few days prior to the training to facilitate learning the material during the class.

This class is for people who have never had forklift training or whose certification has lapsed.  If any of your personnel have certification that has not lapsed, we can arrange to get them recertified (a much SHORTER class).  So far, there are a few people that fit into this category but not enough to fill a class (a minimum for 4 is required).  Please contact AFE to schedule a recertification if you or someone at your unit has requirements.

Please address any questions or concerns to Assistant Facilities Engineer (AFE).
