A Message from Texas811 President and CEO, March 16, 2020
Texas811’s first priority during these uncertain times is the safety of everyone involved. Our goal is to minimize exposure while staying operational.
Thankfully, we have the ability to continue operating. Our call center is taking and processing calls, our web Portal is operational and our entire staff is available to answer any questions and to address any concerns.
Most of our employees are telecommuting from home this week. We are actively working to ensure the remainder of our employees also have the ability to work from home.
Texas811 plays a critical role in public safety and we understand our members and excavators are counting on us to protect their infrastructure and keep everyone safe. Texas811 will keep our operations going and continue with our mission.
You can be assured that we will be able to provide the same level of service as always and we are here ready to help in any way.
President and CEO
