Safe Digging Month Toolkit

Safe Digging Month runs April 1 through April 30. There's radio, outdoor billboards and online campaigns! But you can make the most of the month too. And you'll be helping us get a life-saving message out: 811 before you dig. We've made it kinda simple with a downloadable toolkit, banners and an online game.


We have PSAs! View them here. If you need broadcast quality, click here.
