Kentucky 811 Celebrates 8/11 Day

The Kentucky 811 team was busy celebrating 8/11 Day this year! The team traveled to all corners of Kentucky to spread the safe digging message to homeowners, industry professionals and all Kentuckians. The team secured media interviews, presented to industry stakeholders, networked with the public, and more:

  • Secured interviews on several radio stations in Central Kentucky.
  • Attended and had a booth at “Thursday Night Live”, a monthly street festival in downtown Lexington, in conjunction with Columbia Gas of Kentucky. 
  • Distributed 811 goodie bags to golfers in the Louisville area.
  • Presented about safety and damage prevention at the Kentucky Telephone Association’s annual meeting.
  • Secured a live news broadcast from the 811 Outdoor Weather Garden on WAVE 3 News in Louisville.

Spreading the Word About 811

With the recent implementation of Exactix, Kentucky 811’s online ticketing system, we would like to remind all industry stakeholders of the correct use of graphics and slogans when promoting the 811 Before You Dig message. Always remember:

  • Use the slogan “Know What’s Below. 811 Before You Dig.” as opposed to “Know What’s Below. Call Before You Dig.”
  • Use our updated 811 Before You Dig logos, which can be found on the marketing page of the Kentucky 811 website under “Creative Resources.”
  • A good rule of thumb is to remember that we are phasing out the word “call” to encourage online ticket submission through Exactix.
