INSPECT MISCELLANEOUS FACILITIES
Section I. PUBLIC USE FACILITIES
a. During your career in the Army, you may be required to inspect a variety of
post facilities. Unlike the other facilities discussed in this subcourse and in MD0164,
these facilities have no formal or written standards to serve as a basis for inspections.
The problems involved in these facilities are not addressed in AR 40-5 or other Army
publications. Fortunately, many of these facilities have problems in common with
institutions regulated by formal standards. In conducting your inspections, you must
draw on your knowledge of those facilities with formal standards. Above all, your
judgments must reflect a great deal of common sense.
b. There are three basic groups of miscellaneous facilities: public use facilities,
family housing, and public schools. Section I of this lesson discusses public use
facilities; Section II deals with family housing, and Section III handles public schools.
4-2. TYPES OF PUBLIC USE FACILITIES
Public use facilities include a variety of places that are frequented by the public,
usually for recreation. Examples are theaters, bowling alleys, gymnasiums, and other
recreational areas, such as parks and picnic areas.
