I was told that I’m one of the few technicians that do cable locates in our work area thus I’ve been getting the late night-early morning call outs. The other two guys out of another garage retired recently and now we are down to three who know how to do what I do… No one wants to learn to mark and locate because the consequences of messing up can get you suspended should you fail to properly identify the exact location of the underground cables and fiber loops.
Have you ever been driving and noticed a rainbow of markings on the pavement? There will be a test later. Red lines are for power, yellow is for gas and orange is for communications. For extra credit what are blue and purple for? Pardon my spelling errors I’m operating on minimal sleep. They once again called me in last night again and now I’m exhausted… This too will pass
