Call before you dig

If you are planning to dig, auger, drive stakes or install fence post spikes into the ground, it is essential that you call the Fort Frances Power Corporation before you begin. There are many electrical hazards underground and locating information provided by the underground cable locating service can prevent a serious electrical accident. Arranging to have underground utilities located before you dig is also the law; reference the Ontario Occupation Health and Safety Act Construction Projects Section 228.

The underground cable locate service is free, so make safety a priority and "Call Before You Dig." Please call at least two working days prior to digging to schedule this service.

You need to arrange for a locate to avoid being liable for expensive restoration costs and potential legal actions. Not to mention that an individual can receive a maximum fine of $25,000, a sentence of up to 12 months in prison, or both, while a Corporation can receive a maximum fine of $500,000.

So Call before you dig. It's the law!
