Third-Party Damages

Third-party damages happen for a wide range of reasons. The PRG Outside Plant Damage investigation and recovery program covers them all. Last June in New York City, a contractor was welding a steel road plate over a manhole opening when sparks ignited wooden timbers and cable conduit wiring that contained utilities for multiple companies. Firefighters extinguished the fire an hour later but the damage was extensive: a burnt mass of wires, coax, fiber and melted conduit below the charred timbers and burnt pavement.

The PRG external investigation and recovery team was on the scene assessing the damage, initiating recoveries, educating local contractors and integrating with both state agencies and the 811 community.
