National 811 day on August 11, 2016 was a huge success. Texas811 appeared at the Texas Rangers game where Damage Prevention Manager JimBob Sims was interviewed on Fox Sports: https://aligningchange.wistia.com/medias/2ltrea8ukv
Texas811 President Mike Losawyer was interviewed on CBS affiliate KHOU’s morning show in Houston: http://www.khou.com/mb/entertainment/television/programs/great-day-houston/call-before-you-dig/29498975
We attended a major 811 block party in Houston for safe digging.
And we ended the day featured on the 26 story animated side of the Dallas Omni Hotel, a sight that could be seen for miles reminding North Texans to call 811 before they dig.
Texas811 President Mike Losawyer says ““we are humbled by the faith our members put in Texas811. From our first member over thirty years ago to number 1600 today, Texas811 remains true to our founding charter as a non-profit public safety entity – to protect and serve our members and the public.”
From the largest to the smallest, from the oldest to the newest, our membership serves to remind us on a daily basis of the importance and trust Texans put into the 811 system, and into Texas811, the nation’s largest 811 one call notification center.
Chances are very good that all of the utilities serving you at home or at work are members of Texas811.
Chances are very good that your utility was issued one of the 14 million outbound locate request notices from Texas811 in 2015.
Chances are very good that you and your utility are sleeping better tonight knowing you’re both protected by Texas811.
We’re honored that your utility trusts their business – and yours – to us.
1600 is a nice number.
Until next week, safe digging!
