Practice Safe Digging

Frontier Communications reminds the community that April is “National Safe Digging Month.”

“As we enter spring, we remind homeowners and professional contractors alike to call 811 before digging in order to eliminate the risk of striking an underground utility line,” said Frank Maydak, Frontier’s Wisconsin General Manager.

“After a long winter, people are eager to be outside and start projects, but before doing so, we ask them to call 811 and request a utility locate. Requests may be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and the locate work is done at no charge. Calling 811 is the only way to know which utilities are buried in your area.”
