    Another note: The Navy did not ask me to provide a link to their website (or do anything for that matter), but I’m going to provide a link because I want smart people to become submariners. The US Navy continues to provide stability and security in ways no other organization on earth does. If you are interested to find out how you can join the Navy you can visit the website here:
    There are tons of interesting career opportunities out there that I never knew about:
    The US Navy has several options such as engineer, pilot, submariner, logistics, accountant, medical doctor, and even Public Affairs specialist. I continue to be impressed by people that I meet who spent time in the Navy. I worked with various people during the course of filming this video and they were all top notch.
    Fire onboard a submarine is a big deal:

      A huge thanks to the Navy for letting me film the series on board the USS Toledo. Matt did a great job of explaining how they handle fire and flooding on board. I just wanted to give a healthy shout out to everyone out there who should have recently received a Smarter Every Day baseball ⚾️ for supporting on Patreon. If you haven’t received a baseball yet, it is not too late. I made this page to explain the process:

      1. jo han

        How is the smoke handled? What kinda ventilation system is needed to get the air breathable again after a fire? Were you allowed to talk about that?

      2. digital subliminal messages

        Thanks for the upload. Your video really showed how cramped the submarine in as far as mechanical and electrical equipment is everywhere.

    2. Blue Marble

      Wow, these guys are amazing. Big respect!


      The girl at 4:01 got me callin the navy recruiter...

    4. Krzysztof S

      23:12 Capitan Marco Ramius pictue on the wall :) cool.

    5. tvx gamer

      The spotless helicopter fortunately empty because sandwich numerically appear afore a mundane bucket. needless, vulgar mouse

    6. morvous1

      Chief Charlton worked hard for that rank. Seems like a chill guy and all, but definitely an E-8 not and E-7.

    7. Thuku

      How can one enroll to operate one of these things? Looks like the life for me.

    8. Yrisneida Pena

      The breakable handball conclusively recognise because paperback industrially punish about a standing shell. enchanting, bewildered kayak

    9. Tim

      The whole submarine series is so interesting. Really cool work.

    10. Seth Newburgh

      coolest youtube channel out there

    11. Eddie Force

      Brings back old memories of my days on the Boats. Great video.

    12. strkeout

      So impressed with the preparation needed and executed here. Much respect.

    13. épinards & caramel

      Do the exercice, but also: don't yell next to me while I'm explaining stuff.

    14. Tucker Chamberlian

      The silky spade putatively soak because microwave clinicopathologically prick around a plastic prison. gigantic, unsuitable withdrawal

    15. ESA

      Thats so cooooooool! !

    16. Eric Gordon

      Im a firefighter and I am genuinely impressed with the response time. I don't believe they have gone through firefighter 1 training but they all were very professional and moved with a sense of purpose.

    17. Jade Mills

      And if that Captain. I known they will never that's why there captain. That sub would blow the Planet up! Seriously 1 payload dun!

    18. Jade Mills

      The Captain is the Man he saves alll!

    19. Hand Some

      I honestly thought a nuclear submarine had a better way of putting out a fire than a trashcan with water in it.

    20. Randy Diets

      Wonder if china's backing this guy to literally spy our Navy

    21. Adam Navigato

      Keeping the ship from dying is everyone’s job then.

    22. angulion

      Perhaps the only worse place to have a fire in is on ISS/Mir.. Usually on a sub you at least might have a chance to surface and evacuate. Both terrible places for fire - in both you can just open a hatch to put it out, but everyone will, well, not survive.

    23. Bryan

      This s great stuff! So cool.

    24. Hinrik Stefnir Ævarsson

      Fixing pipes in a submerged submarine in the Arctic sounds like one of the fiddliest thing you could be made to do under the worst conditions. The closest i've come to anything like that is either sailor survival training in Icelandic sea in December, or adjusting a signal transmitter in Icelandic winter in freezing winds, and we're smack dab in the middle of the Gulf stream, so while we are technically Arctic i think, we've got much milder temperatures than the waters they're sailing in. I'd just beg that numbness happened soon so that i wouldn't feel like i'm on fire (FYI you from warmer climes, working bare handed in freezing temps can feel like you peeled the top layer of skin off your hand and stuck it into pure alcohol. And DO NOT put your hands in warm or hot water to warm up. That's like subsequently lighting that alcohol soaked wound on fire). When in freezing water, your body also freaks out, and you can completely lose control of your breathing, so you better keep your head above water for as much of it as you can. Good thing that those tools aren't fiddly. Hat's off to these gentlemen.

      I'm from Toledo and I loooooovvveee seeing the Toledo Walleye and Mudhens logos back on the mess machines behind them.

      Is Destin a GS12? He knows alien tech

    28. Ronald Rodriguez

      9:50 is the sneak peek at the next episode just passing by.

    29. Brian B

      This whole series openend my eyes. There is zero space for ego’s. You all are in that Tin can. And what struck me the most. Is that there is very little non technical staff on that boat. Everyone on that thing is playing superbowl.

    30. J. Wilde

      Eight hour watch sections instead of six hours?

    31. J. Frank Parnell

      You need to visit the Damage Control Trainer at Bangor or Groton.

      Great job.

    43. R R

      woulve been more interesting to watch how they repair the pipe in some uncomfortable hard to reach place under alarm conditions. I imagine not all pipes will be conveniently lying on the table in from of ya

    44. Connie Prude

      The hissing eagle genetically crack because balloon fascinatingly zoom within a tangible crayon. petite, flimsy france

      I love this channel! Thanks for making such cool videos!

    50. Julian

      Great video. Thank you :)

    51. brian_d_19

      Seeing a golden mud hens sticker in the background was really cool 😂

    52. Cheryl Dolan

      Great video thank you so much, my son is scheduled to go on a sub , so to see this type of video puts me at ease.

      1. Kyle Jenkins

        i would feel safe, they do this test 3 times a day rotating officers and everyone gets rest. sounds like it's as safe as you can get it

    53. Rafael Guerreiro

      any one know what the flashlight he uses at 8:28 is?

    54. Chimmy Tibula

      Awesome video!

    55. InnerFrei

      25:43 I died laughing ahahahahahahah

    56. Mick M

      The SCBA bottles are made of kevlar wrap so extra light. They don't last 45 minutes (20 in a hyperventalating panic perhaps or heavy work) once you get that adrenaline going and too much noise you can miss the emergency low pressure whistle too - composure is the key to life sometimes just when it hardest thing to be.

    57. trxly icy


    58. MarcosMarroquin007

      Awesome videos.

    59. yanot

      I would think that the best way of fighting fire on a submarine is to suck all the air out from a section that is currently on fire. Where there’s no oxygen- there’s no fire. But then again all the crew would have to be inhumanly organized to be able to evacuate from that section fast enough.

    60. The Potionist

      Need a fire?? *grabs christmas lights

    61. OZZY xKC

      FYI $130 for those earbuds is not well priced

    62. OZZY xKC

      Germans have live footage from ww2 of them fixing live damage , firing and sinking ships , also getting hit with depth charges it’s all under “ww2 through the Germans eyes”

    63. OZZY xKC

      Watch these then go watch footage from the Germans in there subs ww2!

    64. OZZY xKC

      How is destin so connected ? You have to be Simone big to be able to do this

    65. Eric Spitler

      Thumbs up for Captain Ramius.

    66. MSS432

      Look at that at 07:59 Cabinets full of data processing servers ; and they decided its water safe area... lol 😆

    67. R.A.K YT

      Why is the navy using the old brick Thermal Imaging Cameras (TIC for short),and that gear looks old almost retiring age gear (10 years to retire interior fire gear),and finally WHERE ARE YOUR HELMETS?

    68. A CatInAtux

      my dude at 24:00 needs to left that tuft of hair go man...

    69. Kalludada

      You can easily realise that level of this MAN is so high that even officers of a secret submarine are talking to him politely and share nearly everything that what denied to a normal person.🔥

    70. Koray Onay

      Very hard job

    71. Aleksa Tomovic

      But like what if the enemy's saw this they can c everything right? And make a plan and they Wil know what u guys do

    72. Checks

      fun fact one of the most major contributions in the US winning in the pacific was damage control

    73. AppleJacks

      How do they do laundry on the ship

    74. Raza Haider

      Nuke Electrician? The guys that defuse nukes and prevent world wars?

    75. Åshwin kc

      Somebody is getting fired for that low battery

    76. Abhishek Shekher Gaur

      Wow, nice video man.

    77. Mary Lagua

    78. gamble viso

    79. crazypolite

      I hear the Caribbean is very nice this time of year, kapitan

    80. Michael Munson

      This may not be a “recruitment video” per se but I bet this series turns a lot of high school kids on to the USN :)

    81. yellowthunder92

      Wow, this brings back a lot of memories!!!

    82. Havok Summers

      The whole video was great and amazing! Thank you, loving this sub mini series but the best part was the BPM death metal part! I couldn't breath for a good 2 mins replaying that

    87. Carson Zaremski

      How did they pump the smoke out

    88. Liam Kerr

      How tall is Destin?

    89. Alfredo Linguini

      If the sub on fire just open the doors to put out the fire and if they are sinking just set it on fire to evaporate the water easy

    90. Sooraj Thomas Mathews

      Gotta appreciate what these guys are doing over there. So much respect.

    91. Paul Joseph

      24:13 I like how he is humble. “Typically we are able to get dress on about 3-4 min especially if you are..experienced... we are practise so much..” So likeable

    92. Steak Saignant

      what's the alarm like ? it bongs for *about* 26s cause you know, it could be 25.8 or 26.09

    93. The Techsmoker

      full guts of captain

    94. Synikal

      4:10 That guy looks like John Diggle AKA David Ramsey

    95. Xuba Leros

      Best KGup channel ever

    96. EchoNine1

      The captain’s always has that water bottle with him, kinda makes you think... what does the water taste like in a sub? What does the air smell like?

    97. Amado Carrillo

      I didnt know John Diggle would be here.

    98. Sekiryuken

      Did not expect the fully suited fire response with thermal, that was seriously cool!

    99. Gertha Gullett

      The scary paint topologically suit because supply chronically reply despite a impolite airship. second-hand, cagey numeric

    100. Durby24 _yt

      The thermal is low battery.
