TX811 Damage Prevention Summit in Galveston, February 18-20, was short on sunny warm weather yet strong on attendance! It was good to see familiar faces and meet the many new industry folks too. With many sessions available there was much to be learned. The PHMSA Dirt Report again gave a shock in that with so much being poured into public awareness of Calling 811 before digging, there is still more than half of Texans that do NOT know about calling 811. And the damage caused is costly. It remains evident that the kids are key to 811 knowledge and true damage prevention. If Texas is to move ahead in damage prevention the Underground Utilities, Pipeline Companies and 811 industry must get serious in teaching kids about public awareness. Be Kid Smart is an easy tool that can multiply one voice into many voices. For another great Summit-our thanks to Roger and Kerry at ACTS Now!
