AMARILLO -- Call before you dig. That's the message from Atmos Energy.

Today is 8-1-1 day.

It's a reminder to homeowners, construction crews, and anyone else to always dig on your property safely.

Call 8-1-1. Atmos will come out to your place and they'll mark where you can and can't dig.

It's a free service. It could help save your property and your wallet.
Some examples of if you should call include: installing a mailbox, building a deck, or even planting a tree.
