April is National Safe Digging Month and Colorado 811 is asking fire stations across the state to show their support during the month of April by reminding their local communities and residents to click or call 811 before any digging project, no matter how large or small. It’s simple, we provide the banners and ask your stations to hang them for the month of April. The winner will receive a Traeger grill/smoker for their fire station. Get the details below!
