Anyone who watched television in the 1970’s and 1980’s remembers the late night ads that were the predecessor to today’s half hour “infomercials.” The ads always featured a product that you just couldn’t live without – a toast cooling rack coated with Teflon – and showed you that you really COULD get toast out of your toaster and cool it without burning your hands off.
In breathless fashion, the announcer would guile you into five easy payments of $19.99 each for this marvel of modern technology, and in case you started to feel guilty about shelling out a hundred bucks for a toast cooling rack coated with Teflon that you were never going to use, the announcer launched his ultimate weapon: BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
That’s right, if you order right now, in the next ten minutes, you’ll DOUBLE your savings and also get a ceramic sliced bread stacking plate – no more smushed slices of bread out of that bread bag with the oh so very ancient twist wire tie!
Yep. But wait, there’s more. Always the promise of more.
Here at your DPC’s of Texas, we believe in the promise of more. We deliver to you monthly Damage Prevention Council meetings at locations convenient to you – and even throw in lunch and door prizes! There are 14 of these meetings scheduled in August. See them here: http://dpcoftexas.com/events
We also work with Enertech to bring you the famous Mock Line Strike and PipelineResponse events. As you saw in last week’s blog, there are 26 of these scheduled in Texas in 2018.
We also bring you Safety Day events, featuring hit gas line scenarios, equipment rodeos, vendors and plenty of good food. See them here: http://dpcoftexas.com/special-events
We also speak and present at municipal meetings, utility meetings, lunch and learn meetings – anywhere, anytime.
And of course we’re available for instruction anytime. Click anywhere on the map of Texas on our homepage http://dpcoftexas.org and you’ll see a picture and the name of the Damage Prevention Manager responsible for that county, along with contact information.
And the best part is – we don’t cost you a dime. No convenient monthly payments. All we have is a whole lot of “but wait, there’s more!”
More attention. More knowledge. More events.
When we say “but wait, there’s more!” we mean it.
Until next week, safe digging!
