Captain doggone it 2022 winner

Introducing Captain, Minnesota Energy Resources’ safety ‘ambassadog’

His reminder: Doggone it! Call 811 at least two days before you dig

Always call 811 at least two days before you dig, Captain’s orders.

We gave customers the paw-some responsibility of picking our first ever safety “ambassadog.” Thousands of votes were cast and Captain, a 3-year-old Labrador/terrier mix from Lakeville, Minnesota, is our adorable winner.

He’ll be the star of our safe digging awareness campaign all year long.

Whether you’re planting a garden or installing a fence, you could be putting yourself in danger if you strike an underground natural gas line or electrical cable. Contact 811 at least two days before you dig to have the location of buried utility lines marked — and to keep you and your family safe.
