Excellence Award to OFS Larkana – A Success Story of PTCL Workers in Flood 2010:
OFS (Optical Fibre) Larkana assigned a task for restoring the disconnected services of PTCL at KN Shah Repeater Hut during heavy flood water. Heavy flood water entered in KN Shah on 2-09-2010, all communication services , electricity and roads were damaged, only boat was the way to reach the R/H and city area is completely vacated due to flood emergency for reaching at K.N. Shah R/Hut time duration 4 hours for up down.
Thus we moved to KN Shah on 12 September 2010 through boat for restoration of disconnected and deteriorated media of PTCL and Ufone, when we reached the location there was stagnant, salty, odorous and polluted water of flood with the height 10 to 12 feet. The hottest sun was putting the flames on every body that causing us vomiting and giddy, the stagnant water of flood affected our physique especially our skin, throat infection. However we tried our level best and took efforts without taking any morsel of food and single drop of pure water, this was a deadly task in their life and extraordinary work for restoration of the OFS systems, powered up and the OLA of both DWDM (ZTE & Huawei) & also UFone become normal and we successfully restored the disconnected Links of the PTCL and Ufone. This practice had been done for two months.
