Have you signed up for the Damage Prevention Summit yet? The Summit is going back to the IP in Biloxi and will continue to focus on the damage prevention and enforcement issues that are important to you.
It cannot be over-emphasized how important it is to submit accurate AVRs and proper documentation to support your allegations. Both remain critical to the process of enforcement. The focus of the 2021 Summit will be to provide you with
the information necessary for your success in working
around or protecting underground lines. This year’s event
is scheduled for November 3 – 5. Go to www.mississippi. and register early to get the best deal.
Many thanks to our long-time supporters of damage prevention and of the Mississippi 811 Magazine. If you are trying to reach the excavators in Mississippi; you learned this is likely the best and most economical way to do it. If you haven’t made the
decision to advertise with us yet, I hope you will reconsider and give us a call. You’ll be glad you did!
The Mississippi 811 team works hard to keep you informed. While the pandemic created some travel challenges for our Damage Prevention Coordinators, they are back on the road and ready to provide training or just answer those questions that just come up in your job most every day.
Our CSRs look forward to helping you be safe one ticket at a time. Our mapping team is more robust than ever, and they are ready to help you with your mapping issues to ensure that your level of protection is first class. And don’t forget to check out our website. There is a lot of really good information available to you there. If you haven’t been there in a while, check it out. It is a good way to keep up with what’s going on with us.
I hope to see you soon and especially look forward to seeing you at the Damage Prevention Summit in November.
Now, more than ever, it pays to call 811 before you dig. Remember, it’s not just the law, it is still the right thing to do!
