Getting The Word Out About Pipeline Safety

Promoting Safety Around Florida's Pipelines

The Florida Energy Pipeline Association and its membership are committed to 811 – Call Before You Dig. FEPA is working with Sunshine State One Call of Florida (SSOCOF) and other stakeholders on the common goal of safe transportation of natural gas and refined petroleum products, and FEPA is committed to advancing the mission of the Sunshine State One Call of Florida. We the owners of this underground network of energy transmission pipelines want to know about your digging project and ensure that there are no accidental impacts.

See a PowerPoint presentation on FEPA and our efforts to promote safe excavation practices in partnership with SSOCOF

Call Before You Dig

Building a deck? Planting a tree? Installing a mailbox? 811 is the new number you should call before you begin any digging project.

A new, federally-mandated national “Call Before You Dig” number–811–was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. People digging often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked due to concerns about project delays, costs and previous calls about other projects.
