-Helmet contest in honor of visit by the 811 Damage Prevention Bike created by Paul Jr. Designs

The new 811 Damage Prevention Bike created by Paul Jr. Designs for One Call Concepts, Inc. will be at the May 18 Spokane Shock game and will be in the Spokane Lilac Festival Torchlight Parade and car show on May 19.

In honor of the occasion, Avista is offering a chance for one lucky person to win and design his or her own custom painted motorcycle helmet with the help of Spokane artist Greg Roybal. Entry is easy, just “like” us on Facebook. Sorry, but employees and their family members are not eligible to win. It’s that easy.

Avista is partnering with the Inland Empire Utility Coordinating Council (IEUCC) to bring the bike to Spokane at no cost. Bringing the 811 Prevention Bike to Spokane for high-profile community events is one way that we can share with customers and the public about the importance of calling before beginning any project that involves digging.
Safety and reliability are top priorities for customers and that’s important when it comes to natural gas. Last year there were 552 customer or contractor dig-ins to Avista’s underground natural gas lines. That’s 7.9 dig-ins for every 1,000 locates which is higher than the national average of 3.7. Avista’s goal is to reduce the number of dig-ins in 2012 by 10 percent to increase public safety and reduce costs.
