Hot Air Balloon Visits Greer to Educate Importance of Utility Safety

The 811-hot air balloon will set up at Lowe’s in Greer Friday, November 2nd to spread the message of 811.

The hot air balloon is currently on a cross country trip to support calling before you dig. This is the second Greer visit from the balloon and this year’s theme is “Shovelman” which attendees will get to see displayed on the side of the balloon. The event is open to the public and people are encouraged to visit with the pilot and have their digging questions answered.

“As excited as SC811 is to have the balloon back in South Carolina, we are more excited about the message it brings with it. Preventing damages to utilities and promoting awareness about 811 in South Carolina is something we are passionate about. Having a utility line hit can be an awful situation, but a free call to 811 can prevent damages in our state 99% of the time,” said Megan Hobbs, SC811 Community Liaison.
