PelicanCorp today announced the launch of EducationAccess, an eLearning program for Connecticut’s Call Before You Dig (CBYD) 811 service. CBYD worked in partnership with PelicanCorp to develop a high-quality eLearning experience. This will allow CBYD to offer superior damage prevention training to the state of Connecticut and provide it in a format that is easy to navigate, highly engaging, and information rich.

(Stafford Springs, CT)—Call Before You Dig has partnered with Stafford Speedway to bring the Tri-Track Modified Series to the half-mile for the first time in the series history. The Inaugural 81-lap event will pay a whopping $10,000 to the winner with total posted awards of nearly $50,000.

With Aug. 11th almost here, Call Before You Dig, Inc. hopes this date, 8/11, will serve as a natural reminder for residents to call 811 prior to any digging project to have underground utility lines marked to avoid unintentionally hitting them. Call Before You Dig is a non-profit organization comprised of all public utility companies and municipalities within Connecticut overseen by PURA. CBYD is a free service that provides homeowners and professional excavators with a toll free call by dialing 8-1-1 for locating and marking underground facilities by its members, and calling CBYD before you dig is the law in CT.
