Positive Response Codes - Contributing to Clarity or Confusion?

July 11th, 2024 || 10:30 - 11:30 AM CDT

Positive response codes were designed to play a crucial role in clear and specific communication between the excavator and the utility (locator). Both excavators and locators alike have expressed displeasure with the codes not being specific enough. Is it time to revisit this issue? Have current positive response codes contributed to a lack of clarity in the excavator process>? Should there be universal codes that cross state lines to provide a greater clarity and confidence in the system? Should the process begin with asking excavators and locators to sit down together with the 811 centers to identify their specific concerns? 
 
Join us during the July Town Hall and weigh in on this important issue.

Moderator: Bill Turner, President, Tennessee 811

These Town Hall meetings have been great! I am pretty sure I have never seen less than 100 people on any of these calls. People from all walks of life tied to Damage Prevention are on these calls and there are always good collaboration going on! Personally, I have picked up a good idea from every town hall meeting. 😉
