What do the words “damage prevention” mean to you?

If you work around buried utilities, “damage prevention” takes on a whole new connotation.
Damage Prevention is behind every single thing we do as Damage Prevention Managers working within our Damage Prevention Councils.
We offer open forums for underground stakeholders and the people who work and dig near their infrastructure.
We constantly search and strive for ways to improve the Damage Prevention message throughout Texas. Even though contacting 811 before a dig to get utilities located reduces the chance of hitting something to less than one percent, there are still folks out there who either:
