Education through Demonstration….

The Mock Line Strike demonstration covers a complete excavation lifecycle from making the one-call, line locating, proper excavation tactics, line strike and emergency/operator response to the line strike.  The forum is set on an excavation site and representatives from each stakeholder group speak on each topic during the excavation lifecycle.  Education through Demonstration is designed to transform the contractors experiences, improve reach and create the critical connections necessary to prevent a pipeline incident. 


Hosted by North Carolina 811 & Pipeline Operators on November 7, 2017 at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.

Excavators, emergency responders, utility operators, and public officials to witness the live-action demonstration. The event featured a simulated natural gas pipeline damage to illustrate the importance of calling before you dig and using industry best practices when working in close proximity to underground utility lines. While a narrator describes the details, industry professionals will demonstrate each step in the safe digging process using real equipment.
