Call 811 Before you Dig

April is National Safe Digging Month.

Did you know there is more than one football field's length of buried utilities for every man, woman and child in the United States? That's more than 100 billion feet of cable, gas, electric, telephone and water lines buried underground, according to data by Common Ground Alliance from various industry groups.

Reduce the chance of causing damage. Call 811 before you dig.

Be Prepared for Winter Driving

Prepare your car for winter by checking the condition of your vehicle’s major systems like brakes and your battery. Winter weather can quickly ensnare you in a slippery mess or even envelope you in white-out conditions.

AAA offers helpful winter driving tips:

  • Never mix radial tires with other types of tires
  • Avoid using your parking brake to slow or stop
  • Do not use cruise control in wintery conditions
  • Look and steer in the direction you want to go
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly
  • Increase following distance to 8 to 10 seconds
  • Know whether you have antilock brakes, which will "pump" the brakes for you in a skid
  • What are the Top Causes of Injury and Death?

    Keep your community and family safe by understanding what the biggest causes of unintentional injury-related deaths are according to Injury Facts 2016. The list includes:

    1. Poisoning
    2. Motor Vehicle Crashes
    3. Falls
    4. Choking and Suffocation
    5. Drowning
    6. Fires & Burns
    7. Natural and Environmental Incidents

    Injury Facts 2016 is now available for purchase as a print and download bundle, or as a download only.
