Natural gas safety is a partnership, so we want everyone to understand the importance of calling 811 before building a deck, planting a tree, installing a fence or digging for any other project. Calling 811 is free, it’s safe and it’s required by law – helping to protect millions of miles of underground utility lines that are vital to everyday life.

I pledge to:

  • Always call 811 at least three business days* before I start any digging project.
  • Become an advocate for calling 811 before digging.
  • Educate others about the importance of knowing the location of underground utility lines.

*This timeframe varies by state. Click here for state law information.

Make the pledge
