Angie’s List: Dial Before You Dig

Thursday is August 11th.

Numerically, it’s 8-1-1, which is significant to utility companies and safety officials because those are the digits too few of us dial before starting a project that requires digging in the yard.

Courtney Hunter explains how calling 8-1-1 before you dig could keep you safe in this Angie’s List report.

Experts say digging accidents cause tens of thousands of service disruptions and dozens of injuries each year.

Calling 8-1-1 first will help you avoid that.

It’s a free call and available 24/7.
