In 2007, the Common Ground Alliance (CGA), a member-driven association that promotes the safety of underground facilities, spearheaded the 811 National Awareness Campaign. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of this important achievement for the underground damage prevention industry!
When 811 became the universal three-digit dial code for America’s one call centers, it set the stage for the creation of safe digging efforts that could be easily recognized by professional excavators and homeowners across the country. To assist stakeholders with the planning of 811 events and media material, the CGA created an online toolkit with approved logos, press release templates, and other materials.
