PA One Call worked on outreach and support for National Safe Digging Month (NSDM) in April. To this end, they have been working with their local government facility owners to support NSDM with a Proclamation similar to the national effort for Governor Proclamations in each state.
As of April 1, PA One Call secured 373 NSDM Proclamations from local government ntities large and small across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including cities, townships, municipalities, municipal authorities and county government. They even encouraged these entities to start the NSDM conversation on their own with social media
posts that tags PA One Call.
The map above really helps understand the breadth and scope of this effort to raise support. Blue icons represent county entities.
PA One Call obtained proclamations from 28 of 67 county government entities, even though some of them are not underground facility owners, proclamations from at least one government entity in 62 of 67 Pennsylvania counties and even a proclamation from Buckeye Partners, L.P., an underground facility owner in Pennsylvania.
Good job, PA One Call! We’re impressed!
