BGE Invites Members of the Media to See the 811 Bike at Friday’s Lineman for a Day Event

Nationally touring custom motorcycle stops at BGE’s May 31 “Lineman for Day” event in White Marsh to emphasize the importance of calling 811 before digging

WHO:          Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) safety and training personnel

:        BGE will be hosting the 811 Bike, a custom motorcycle built by Paul Jr. Designs for One Call Concepts which manages one-call center operations, such as Miss Utility in Maryland, in 14 states and DC. Featured on episodes of American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior on the Discovery Channel, the 811 Bike was designed to highlight the importance of calling 811 before digging.  This is critical not only for safety, but also service reliability, a focus of BGE’s “Lineman for Day” event that gives members of media the opportunity to experience first-hand the techniques, and also challenges, associated with restoring service following storms.
