Enertech in Longview, TX. for Mock Line Strike Event!

East Texas contractors and excavators gathered in Longview Thursday to attend a safety event put on by the East Texas Disaster Prevention Council and Texas 811. The day’s message was to call 811 before you dig to learn more about what you might hit while digging.

As part of the demonstration, a backhoe operator pretended to rupture a gas line. Compressed air mixed with lime filled the air in one of the fields at the Longview Exhibit Building, while Pipeline Operators and Emergency Officials show proper response procedures and work in a unified command to handle the situation properly.
