Seal of the State of Nevada

WHEREAS, subsurface safety awareness and initiatives that promote the importance of safety are critical to the development of a stable and reliable infrastructure in the State of Nevada; and

WHEREAS, each year, the failure to comply with safe digging practices prescribed by the State jeopardizes lives and property, and results in lost time and productivity; and

WHEREAS, Nevada has joined a nationwide effort to simplify the process for requesting a dig ticket by calling 811, a call which can be made at no cost; and

WHEREAS, dialing 811 can help to avoid damages to underground facilities, thereby reducing the loss of service to the public and the loss of time and money to contractors, utilities, and taxpayers; and

WHEREAS, the State of Nevada remains committed to promoting subsurface safety, and joins states and communities nationwide in encouraging citizens to take steps to help protect lives and property by complying with digging and subsurface safety rules and regulations;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, STEVE SISOLAK, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, do hereby proclaim April 2019 as
