Patricia and Ashley welcome Brian from VA 811 to the show to test their digging safety knowledge with a fun game. Who will win? Watch and see.

When you begin digging, make sure to allow a reasonable distance from either side of the markings.
Don’t let your backyard turn into a backyard disaster! Be sure to give Virginia 811 a call before you dig!
