April is “National Safe Digging Month” and Atmos Energy will focus the entire month of April to raise awareness of the importance of safe digging practices and the importance to always call 811 before any digging project begins. 

On April 1 we are launching a “Yard Rescue 811” social media contest for a chance to win $811 towards yard improvement.  As part of National Safe Digging Month in April, the contest reminds property owners, construction crews and do-it-yourselfers to stay safe by always calling 811 before digging.

As a valued community partner, can you help deliver this important safety message along with promotion of the chance to win a yard makeover through our “Yard Rescue 811” contest.

For your review, I have attached a press release about the “Yard Rescue 811” contest along with a web banner and website link to the contest information site.  Feel free to use information from the press release to promote the contest. 

Please let me know if the city is able to communicate this very important safety message along with the Atmos Energy “Yard Rescue 811” contest through the city print publication and website.  Below is some additional information to help launch the contest during National Safe Digging Month in April.
