Excavator News January 2022

Thank you for attending the 2021 MWDPTC!

Thank you to all who joined us at the 9th annual Midwest Damage Prevention Training Conference in French Lick, Indiana last November! Last year’s sold-out event brought together nearly 600 damage prevention professionals for three days of educational and networking opportunities.

The MWDPTC featured educational sessions that covered a breadth of damage prevention topics taught by international and national experts, as well as keynote speaker Josh Bleill and featured speaker Ricky Rollins, who shared their inspiring stories of leadership and safety. Damage prevention professionals reconnected and built new relationships at the conference’s networking events, including horseback riding, clay pigeon shooting and the annual golf tournament.

As excavators, you help keep us safe and connected to crucial utilities by following safe digging practices. To those who attended, thank you for committing to your continuing damage prevention education. We look forward to seeing all of you in idyllic French Lick again this year for the 2022 MWDPTC, from Nov. 9-11!

Exactix Logos Available in Kentucky 811 Toolkit

With the implementation earlier this year of our new online ticketing platform, Exactix, Kentucky 811 is encouraging more online ticket submissions to streamline the 811 process for excavators and members. To help promote the safe digging message and drive your employees and subcontractors to Exactix to submit tickets, we have made the Exactix Home and Exactix Pro logos available to download in the Kentucky 811 marketing toolkit.
Additionally, Kentucky 811 has updated graphics and slogans to use when promoting the 811 Before You Dig message to reinforce the use of online tickets through Exactix. The marketing toolkit now has updated our logos with the new “811 Before You Dig” slogan as opposed to “Call Before You Dig” to encourage online tickets rather than calling 811 via phone.
These new logos can be found on the marketing page of the Kentucky 811 website under “Creative Resources”. Thank you for your continued support in promoting the important safe digging message!
