NORAC Signal Reference / NORAC Color Light Signal Guide

A sixty-one page NORAC Color Light Signal Guide is attached. Not sure of the origin of this file but it has some useful tips. Note that the aspects that should flash don't due to the fact that the file format is PDF. I suspect this may have originally been a PowerPoint presentation that has been saved as a PDF file.
