Blood Hound Safety & Training
Why Call Blood Hound?
WE START WHERE THEY STOP.
You are required by law to call 811 before you dig to have underground public utilities marked. However, one-call services only locate the facilities owned by public utilities - electric, gas, oil, sewer, telephone, water, leaving you at risk of damaging private utilities, which make up the vast majority of underground utilities and subsurface structures.
Blood Hound locates and marks ALL underground utilities and structures, reducing your risk of costly damages and project delays and mitigating safety hazards to your crews and community.
Our comprehensive services, advanced technologies, and highly trained and experienced technicians, and commitment to quality are unmatched in the ability to protect your project budget, keep you on schedule, and keep your crews and community safe.
