Fire House 811 Campaign



The FIRE HOUSE 811 campaign encourages fire companies to take a stand against trenching incidents within their communities by promoting "Call 811 Before You Dig". Participating fire houses have multiple chances to win $500! The drawings occur: June 14, July 12, August 9, September 13, October 11, November 8 and December 13.

To sponsor:
        The campaign goal is to engage fire stations to post creative 811 messages on their fire house marquees. 
        The desired outcome is to decrease the number of incidents within a service area.
        The sponsor's participation commitment is to actively promote the outreach campaign within their service areas.
        To sponsor the campaign, send an email to contact@pa1call.org or call 412-464-7136.
        The deadline to sponsor is Tuesday, April 30, 2019.

To qualify for the drawing:
         A fire station will post a creative 811 message on their marquee; or, hang an 811 banner on a building with the fire station name visible; and,
         Email the picture, address of the fire station with their contact information (contact person, email address and telephone number) to contact@pa1call.org.
         Entries are accepted from May 17th through December 13th.
         One entry per fire station. 
         One entry qualifies for drawings. You can only win once.
         Drawings will occur every second Friday of the month starting in June and ending in December.
