Public Awareness Toolkits

CGA has created a suite of toolkits designed to help members generate public awareness about the importance of damage prevention. From news media and social media outreach, to advertisements and grassroots engagement, CGA’s Public Awareness Toolkits put a range of templates, how-to guides, graphics and other resources right at members’ fingertips.

811, the three-digit number to call before you dig, continues to be a primary vehicle for generating awareness among both general public and industry audiences. You can protect yourself, your business and your customers by incorporating the 811 logo into your existing campaigns or by downloading elements of the Public Awareness Toolkits.

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