Over 135 kids participated and proudly hung their drawings on our 811 trailer.
We want to thank our volunteers from NW Natural who helped us at our 811 booth while thousands of attendees stopped by our booth.
Oregon Utility Notification Center / OUNC was a proud sponsor of this years Starlight Parade on June 1st.
There was 325,000 spectators that lined the streets of downtown Portland to watch the second-largest illuminated parade in the Northwest. We were able to share the 811 message to a very large audience!
A huge thank you to One Call Concepts, Inc. and 811 On The Road for bringing the 811 Car to be in the parade. Another thank you to the wonderful volunteers that helped hand out 811 promo items and walked the parade!
Tobin Werner, NW Natural, shared natural gas safety information as well as job opportunities in the industry with the students. We also shared the importance of calling 811 before any digging project!
Students from Sam Barlow, Parkrose, Washougal, Reynolds, David Douglas, and Franklin high schools attended.
Each activity station gave the students demonstrations on installing piping, virtual reality equipment simulation, and other job related skills. After stopping by our 811 booth, they learned the importance of always Calling 811 before any excavation/digging project.
