National Safe Digging Month
April is National Safe Digging Month.
Every couple of minutes, underground utility lines are accidentally damaged by homeowners and contractors who don’t contact JULIE before digging. Consequently, 49.3 million Americans nationwide risk endangering themselves, their families, and their communities by digging without first contacting their local 811 Center. Luckily, Illinois has a free notification service called JULIE that is dedicated to preventing damages to underground utility lines and keeping everyone safe, including homeowners, landscapers, contractors, and professional excavators.
Contact JULIE before beginning any digging project. Visit the website for a Safe Digging Month Toolkit containing valuable information on this safety initiative http://ow.ly/APk750NqGxC. #Call811 #JULIEBeforeYouDig
