CEDAR RAPIDS – Alliant Energy is participating in the Iowa One Call 2018 Excavator Safety Awareness Programs. Every year, between January and March, Iowa One Call holds a series of safety meetings throughout the state. These meetings promote safe digging practices and emphasize the importance of calling 811 before you dig.
Contractors, excavators, builders, landscapers, municipal and utility workers are encouraged to attend. Each meeting begins at 11:30 a.m. with a meal, followed by a safety-focused program, and wraps up with door prizes at 1:45 p.m. There is no fee to participate, but attendees must register online at iowaonecall.com. Area training sessions in January and February are below. Meetings in March will be announced later.
