National Safe Digging Month is Here!

It's that time again. Spring is in the air and National Safe Digging Month is here! Every April, Dig Safely New York celebrates the month by promoting the safety and damage prevention message. This year, we are contiuning our annual sign contest, getting community centers and first reponders involved in our advocacy.  We are also partnering with national stakeholders to bring you the, "Can You Dig It?" game with a chance to win more than $8,500 in prizes.


To promote damage prevention, we are again running our annual sign contest. Dig Safely New York asks organizations all over its service area to show their support for safe digging by reminding their communities to call Dig Safely New York before any digging project. By posting a reminder on their outdoor signs for the month of April and submitting a photo to Dig Safely New York, the organizations are entered to win a TV.

In addition to our sign contest, we have again teamed up with one-call centers around the country to bring you, “Can You Dig It?” This is an interactive game where you dig holes daily to find prizes. This year, more than $8,500 in prizes are at stake! You can dig a hole each day in April to find a Amazon Echo Dot, Kindle, gift cards, iPad Air 2, XBOX One Bundle, Apple Watch, Beats Headphones, and so much more!
