Georgia 811’s mascot, Digger Dog, visited Lyman Hall Elementary School’s second- and third-grade students March 13 and encouraged them to “know what’s below and call before they dig.”
Digger explained the importance of not damaging underground utility lines by digging safely, how to be safe near overhead power lines and what to do if the power lines are down. He also demonstrated the smell of natural gas and what students should do if they smell it. Digger discussed what the little colored flag and paint on the ground represents and that students should never move the flags.
