information. The CASREP system contains four types
of reports: Initial, Update, Correct, and Cancel. These
reports are described in general in the following
Initial Casualty Report (INITIAL)
An initial casrep identifies the status of the casualty
and any parts or assistance needed. Operational and
staff authorities use this information to set priorities for
the use of resources.
Update Casualty Report (UPDATE)
An update casrep is used to submit changes to
previously submitted information.
Correction Casualty Report (CORRECT)
A correct casrep is submitted when equipment that
has been the subject of casualty reporting is repaired
and is back in operational condition.
Cancellation Casualty Report (CANCEL)
A cancel casrep is submitted when equipment that
has been the subject of casualty reporting is scheduled
to be repaired during an overhaul or some other
availability. Outstanding casualties that will not be
repaired during such availability will not be canceled
and will be subject to normal follow-up casualty
reporting procedures as specified.
