811 Campaign

In May 2007, the CGA launched a national "Call Before You Dig" campaign to increase public awareness about the importance of using 811.  Since the creation of 811, the CGA and our 1,400 members and sponsors have worked to continuously raise awareness of 811 throughout the United States.  In 2009, the 811 campaign continues to advance through stakeholder support and collaborative efforts with national companies including Shell Pipeline, Home Depot and John Deere. 

Call811.com Web Site

The CGA launched the web site www.call811.com to establish a strong web presence for the campaign and to provide users with additional information on the call-before-you-dig process.  The Call811 web site is intended to provide potential diggers with an introduction to the process, answers to basic questions and potential resources for additional information. 

Campaign Resources

The focus of the CGA's campaign effort has been to create the tools and resources that will assist our members and stakeholders with spreading the 811 message.  The 811 campaign materials and tool kits are free to download and use by CGA stakeholders. Many campaign materials can be customized with your logo.  All artwork, materials and planning documents can be accessed on the web (811 Campaign Materials).  This page is intended to be an internal stakeholder resource and is not readily visible from the www.call811.com home page but can always be accessed by linking from the Common Ground Alliance web site or by visiting www.call811.com/campaign-materials directly.
