FLORIDA (WTXL) - April is Safe Digging Month in Florida and officials want to remind you to call 8-1-1 before you dig!

Nationwide, a buried utility line is hit once every six minutes and by calling 8-1-1, experts will come out for free to mark what lines may be under your property.

VIDEO: Brad Martin, Sunshine 811 Damage Prevention Liaison joined us on Sunrise to talk about the importance of getting your yard marked before you dig.
