MEDEVAC: Having Oxygen Bottle Bracket Trouble?


If your unit’s interim MEDEVAC mission support system (IMMSS) oxygen bottle brackets are cracking or breaking, listen up.

PD MEDEVAC needs to know if you have broken or cracked brackets and requests that units submit a DD Form 1348-6 supply request through normal channels for replacements.

Replacing the brackets is a field sustainment requirement and submitting a supply request on a DD Form 1348-6 captures the demand data for the bracket. That’s important because if there’s enough demand, the bracket eventually gets an NSN assigned, which triggers the supply system to order and stock the item.

But hold on to those broken brackets. Don’t throw them away.

What do you do with broken or cracked brackets? You turn them in, but there are specific instructions for how to do it. Contact Dave Dapkus at (256) 313-5539 or Mike Brooks at (256) 313-1204 for assistance. 

They have the instructions you’ll need for turning in broken brackets. Also, if you’re having other issues with the IMMSS, it’s important to let them know. Your feedback helps them solve the problems you may have with the IMMSS system.
