Call Georgia 811 before you dig

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – If you are doing any yard work or home repairs, you will want to make a quick phone call before you dig. Cliff Meidl stopped by 41 Today to tell us about Georgia 811.

Georgia 811 is a three digit phone number you should call before you dig, whether it is a small or big project. You can find out what power or electrical lines are underground.

It could be very dangerous to dig without not knowing what is underneath. Meidl said he was involved in an accident years ago. He was using a jackhammer, hit an electrical line, and nearly lost his life.
