The team with the fastest overall time is the winning team. Students will walk away with the realization that it only takes a second to buckle up and it’s worth a second to save their life and their passengers lives. 160

JEAJEA utilizes and leverages varying technology to mitigate the impact of pipe installation to our customers. By using a directional drill, up to 400' of pipe can be installed in a day, with two smaller excavations as opposed to the conventional trench. This saves time, rehabilitation costs and customer inconvenience. We are able to get newly installed mains in service sooner in an effort to maintain system reliability and integrity.151
JEAIn this lab, we will demonstrate the procedures for inspecting the piping installed below grade using both Sonar Equipment for rapid inspection and CCTV for detailed visual inspection. The students will observe and have the opportunity to operate the remotely operated robotic CCTV that is currently in use and utilize the sonar equipment. This lab will establish the link between current needs and the development of improved methods utilizing technology as it becomes available/cost effective.154
JEAIn this lab, we will demonstrate the procedures for installing and maintaining transformers and distribution lines. Emphasis will be on the skills required to perform the installation as well as the path to achieving those skill. Safety will always be of paramount importance.155
JEAJEA’s UN&CM Cable Splicers provide power to Jacksonville’s most critical infrastructure such as schools, hospitals, military installations, water & wastewater infrastructure, and all of downtown. Although the city depends on the work this department accomplishes daily, the Cable Splicers are rarely seen in action by the public. Instead, this group works tirelessly in manholes, vaults, basements, and back alleyways to ensure that what is out of the public’s sight stays out of the public’s mind. I would like our display to include: • 3 phase padmount transformer on a pallet with cable tails terminated. The visitors will get to switch elbows. • PMH-4 fusing cabinet where visitors can hang and close fuses with a hot stick • A lead furnace station where a journeyman can demonstrate molten solder • A display of varying cable types and sizes • A TV playing the Underground video made last year • A station where visitors may don high voltage gloves and attempt to cut 4 solid. I am happy to give the presentation with the help of a Journeyman or two for safety. I would like to have enough cones and channelizing tubes to create a “safe zone” to walk them through our station.156
JEAIn this lab, we will demonstrate the technology that is utilized in the inspection of the electrical distribution system. Through the demonstration of the thermal camera system, the students will achieve an understanding of the skills that are necessary to perform rapid and non-disruptive preventive maintenance to the power distribution system.157
JEA In this lab, we will demonstrate the technology used in the inspection of under-pressure water water main assessment.158
JEAThe lab displays the equipment JEA uses to clean sanitary sewer mains and to pump and haul sewage to prevent sanitary sewer overflows. The demonstion will consist of reviewing all the features on the truck. The Vac Truck also has a nozzle camera feature that we can display to show another way we are able to obtain video of the pipe for inspection. 159
