Safe Digging Month

We're in the final week of Safe Digging Month and there's still a lot going on in Florida!

Maybe you’ve heard our radio or television PSAs. Maybe Sunshine 811 popped up in your browser while online. Or, you saw our billboard while driving. These are some of the ways we’ve promoted “811 before you dig” this April.

This year we also combined Safe Digging Month and Lawn Care Month promoted by the National Association of Landscape professionals. They have some wonderful factoids we've been able to share with you while reminding everyone that 811 is still necessary when putting in a lawn or planting trees and plants. Check out our Facebook or Twitter feed.

We hope you've been digging those virtual holes, fighting off Gary the Gopher in the game CAN YOU DIG IT? Twenty holes. Daily digs. $8,500 in prizes. There's still eight days left to dig and win! You get extra digs when you share the game or answer a question about 811. What more could you want?

Did you do anything fun or interesting to promote 811 during Safe Digging Month? Tell us about it on Facebook or Twitter. Tag or message us. When friends tell friends, you make a big difference in getting 811 out there in April and throughout the year. Help us keep your friends and your neighborhoods safe!

Use our Safe Digging Month page and toolkit to promote 811 and safe digging all year long!
