“Call 811 before you dig on your farm or ranch!” Campaign

Pipeline strikes can cause serious injury, including burns, asphyxiation, electrocution, and even death. POAS is offering farmers and ranchers a variety of free resources to help keep them safe and to avoid costly damage and service outages that may affect their local communities.

Harrison, another featuring Greg Peterson of the Peterson Farm Brothers, and an additional three featuring farmers and ranchers sharing their stories.The PSAs remind listeners to never assume the location and depth of underground lines and always call 8-1-1 or visit clickbeforeyoudig.com before starting work. The PSAs are :30 in length. Evergreen (no expiration)/ Available in English and Spanish.
