PART C - THE INSTALLATION
Now that you are familiar with safety and the equipment needed to do the job, it is time to
discuss how a telephone line is installed. It is not something you would just go out on your own and do
without learning the proper techniques.
Some lines are short and within the node. These are usually installed first because this is where
the staff elements for command and control are normally located. Before a telephone line can be
installed, you must know the location, type of service required, and priority of installation. This
information will have been given to your team chief/supervisor. You would get your instructions from
him and begin installation.
