811, the three-digit number to call before you dig, continues to make an impact on the damage prevention community, and you and your organization can help!  You can protect yourself, your business and your customers by incorporating the 811 logo into your existing campaigns or by downloading elements of the national awareness campaign.

The CGA has developed a series of educational videos and PSAs to bring the safe digging message to life.

The stakeholder advocacy toolkit incudes documents that are available to assist stakeholders in discovering best practices that have already been identified through the CGA, case studies describing legislative activities that have taken place recently in some states, a list of states that have current legislative activity indicated, as well as contact information for stakeholder groups that would be beneficial to engage in the process of building a legislative coalition with your state.

CGA's Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) program collects critical damage and event information, analyzing the numbers and producing targeted recommendations to damage prevention stakeholders about how to best protect buried facilities. The CGA launched DIRT, www.cga-dirt.com, in late 2003, and since then stakeholders have been able to submit underground damage and near-miss reports through a completely secure, private web application.
