The ‘811 Promise’ – Call Before You Dig
Posted October 8, 2012
The Common Ground Alliance is about digging safety – getting folks to call 811 before they did to prevent accidents with buried utilities, including gas lines. Right now the alliance is running a campaign urging Americans to “Make the 811 Promise” – a commitment to always call 811 before digging.
There’s a sweepstakes to help promote the campaign, “Race to South Beach,” with the winning prize being a trip to Miami for NASCAR’s Nov. 18 Ford EcoBoost 400 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. Details here.
