Can anyone tell me the Navy condition levels -- that is, condition III, condition I, etc. and which one is more serious?

Thx

I did a better google search and got my own question answered, if anyone is curious:

d. Operational Bills - set forth policies and procedures in such areas as the boat bill, civil disaster, cold weather, darken ship, EMCON, etc.

STATE THE VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF READINESS AND THEIR PURPOSE:

Condition I - General Quarters, all hands at battle stations

Condition II - Modified General Quarters, used in large ships to permit some relaxation among personnel

Condition III - Wartime Cruising, generally one third of the crew is on watch, and strategic stations are

manned or partly manned. (e.g. weapons)

Condition IV - Optimum Peacetime Cruising, provides adequate watch manning, provides personnel economy. It

is normal peacetime cruising condition.

Condition V - Not normally a condition, IN-PORT ROUTINE.
