[ARCHIVED] National Grid Urges Caution During "National Safe Digging Month"

National Grid reminds customers that a simple phone call to Dig Safe®, by dialing 811, can prevent serious personal injury, property damage and service interruptions caused by accidentally digging into electric, gas, telephone, water, sewer or cable facilities. In Massachusetts during 2013, there were more than 500 incidents of damage to the natural gas or electrical system attributed to excavator error or failure to call Dig Safe® prior to beginning work. These events can cause outages, natural gas leaks and other emergencies that can be prevented by taking a few precautions before digging.
