Call Before You Dig

Damage Prevention Coordinators

Safety is a deeply rooted part of the Columbia Gas of Maryland culture. We are taking a proactive approach to safety and 811 Call Before You Dig through our newly created Damage Prevention Team.

A core part of the Damage Prevention Team is our group of Damage Prevention Coordinators. The Damage Prevention Coordinators’ purpose is to educate the general public, homeowners, contractors, and any person that is involved in excavating about the significance of calling 811 and digging safely around underground utilities.

National statistics show that some form of an underground utility line is damaged by someone digging once every three minutes! In the essence of safety and our continuing quest to put an end to third party pipeline damages, we are proud to make our Damage Prevention Coordinators available to you!

Contact a Damage Prevention Coordinator today to learn more about safe digging techniques and the significance of calling 811, best practices for excavation safety and natural gas information and how you can safely dig around underground utilities.
