This spring CGA has launched a brand new tool in conjunction with National Safe Digging Month - The 811 Promise, found at www.The811Promise.com.
This online promise was inspired by a pilot campaign implemented by Panhandle Energy, Dig Safely New York, and Georgia 811 surrounding 8/11 Day in 2011. The campaign was instituted to create a way for a large number of stakeholders from various industries to promise they would always call 811 before digging. Along with promoting the importance of 811 to fellow stakeholders and the general public.
This year, CGA brought this same program to a national level with the website, www.The811Promise.com. This easy-to-use site encourages stakeholders to formally pledge their support of 811 as the first step in safe digging. Users simply added their name and location, and their promise is automatically added to the growing number of promises.
In just one month, more than 2,500 people from across the country have made the 811 promise, but we know that number can go MUCH higher. Click the link above to make the 811 promise and show your commitment to safe digging.
