If you like the song “Shut up and dance” by Walk the moon, then I have a good feeling you will like this new music video by the folks at North Carolina 811, “Stop and make the call”. In order to help spread the word that August 11th is National 8-1-1 Day, Steven Moore, Media Relations Specialist at NC811 developed this catchy tune.
811 is the phone number you call before digging to protect yourself and others from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines.
There are millions of miles of buried utilities beneath the surface of the earth that are vital to everyday living like water, electricity and natural gas.
811 is the federally designated call before you dig number that helps homeowners and professionals avoid damaging these vital utilities. When you make the free call to 811 a few days before you dig, you’ll help prevent unintended consequences such as injury to you or your family, damage to your property, utility service outages to the entire neighborhood and potential fines and repair costs.
We sure hope you enjoy the video and please make sure to repost it on your facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and any other social media sites.
