Mock Natural Gas Line Digging Accident to Demonstrate Importance of Contacting 811 Before Digging
To commemorate 8/11 Day (August 11), Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas), The California Regional Common Ground Alliance (CARCGA) and Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) held a mock utility line strike to raise awareness about the importance of contacting 811 at least two working days (not counting the day of notification) prior to the start of any project that involves digging. When residents or contractors contact 811, utility companies will mark the locations of their underground lines to prevent them from being damaged, which could cause injury, death, service outages or costly repair bills for homeowners.
