811 Campaign

811, the three-digit number to call before you dig, continues to make an impact on the damage prevention community, and you and your organization can help!  You can protect yourself, your business and your customers by incorporating the 811 logo into your existing campaigns or by downloading elements of the national awareness campaign.

The 811 campaign materials are free to download and use by CGA stakeholders.  Please ensure you have reviewed the 811 Graphic Standards document prior to using any artwork or materials.  If you are not a member, you will be asked to register with the CGA web site prior to download.  Many campaign materials can be customized with your logo, and certain materials are available in Spanish.
