Call Before You Dig

The temperature is starting to get very nice in the Ozarks, and that means people are going to start working more outside. Working outside can mean a whole lot of things, but if you are working on a digging project don’t start digging until you have had a professional tell you it’s safe to do so. Phil Marcum with Summit Natural Gas says April is National Safe Digging Month.

Marcum says you should call 811 a couple of days early, and talks about the risk you are taking if you do not call 811.

Remember to be safe when you are about to dig because you don’t want to have to pay a fine for not calling 811.
