Education Mobile Unit (E.M.U.)

The Educational Mobile Unit  (E.M.U.)

 

Last year MISS DIG 811 contracted to have the Educational Mobile Unit (E.M.U.) created. The E.M.U. was made for the purpose of educating the public on underground safety. However, in the process we were able to create some educational fun too. The Educational Mobile Unit will be performing in public for the first time in 2021.

One of our most influential members of our communities are our children and we wanted to engage these young ones in the fun of learning about becoming Underground Superheroes.

The E.M.U. has many learning activities to engage everyone, young and old, using videos, hands on activities, virtual reality, corn hole and plinko games. We created a coloring book and a passport to move the learner through a variety of activities to finally be awarded the prestigious title of Underground Superhero.

The Education Mobile Unit was created to travel throughout the state to bring awareness to buried underground utilities and how each and everyone of us can be a superhero in our own neighborhoods.

We travel upon request to schools, annual meetings, home improvement stores, local neighborhoods and much, much more. Look for us in a neighborhood near you or contact us for a visit from the E.M.U. at  education@missdig811.org   or call

 

The Marine Ticket

What's New - MISS DIG System, Inc. - The_M

MISS DIG 811 has developed a Marine Ticket to help prevent damage to underwater facilities that cross or lie in our bodies of water. The Marine Ticket is designed to create a line of communication between the excavator, locator, and the facility owner/operator. Through this continuous line of communication, the goal is damage protection of facilities and the protection of Michigan’s environment and aquatic ecosystems.

To place a Marine Ticket call 811 and speak to one of our Notification System Representatives. You may also place a Marine Ticket by being a Remote Ticket Entry Full Access Member.

For more information, please contact Education Specialist Pat Goddard at pgoddard@missdig811.org  or 906-553-0033
