We all know that we’re supposed to call South Dakota 811 two working days before we begin digging, but in our busy lives we sometimes forget why.
The bottom line is that calling South Dakota 811 is an important safety net for those who excavate. Yes, it is the law. Yes, it protects underground utilities from damage. But it also protects you; it helps you get home to your family safely tonight and every tonight.
So the next time you’re in a rush and think you don’t have time to call South Dakota 811, remember the call you don’t have time to make protects you.
