National Safe Digging Month will kick off with the launch of the new 811 Hot Air Balloon presented by http://coxusi.com/ on April 1st. The 811 Balloon will travel across the country raising awareness about underground damage prevention. CGA Members will have the opportunity to book the Balloon for an appearance at their event. The 811 Balloon is on a dedicated path and timeline. Although weather will be a contributing factor to its appearances; every effort will be made to accommodate requests.
Both Cox Utility Services and CGA have secured insurance to cover the 811 Hot Air Balloon's flight across the country this digging season.
A template press release and media advisory can be customized to promote your 811 Hot Air Balloon event. One version is available for organizations hosting an event during April (National Safe Digging Month), while the other can be used anytime this digging season.
Please use these approved 811 Hot Air Balloon logos on any materials you produce promoting the balloon appearance.
The 811 Hot Air Balloon Tour is well underway! Check out these videos from the 811 Hot Air Balloon's stops.
