Public Safety Awareness


Before excavation of any kind takes place, State law requires that you call Sunshine State One Call of Florida, Inc. so that underground utilities can be professionally marked prior to any digging.  This does not pertain only to businesses; homeowners putting in pools, clotheslines, mail boxes, flowers, and play ground equipment need to also consider that there could be underground lines that could be tapped into.

Sunshine State One Call of Florida, Inc. can be contacted by dialing 8-1-1.  State law requires you to call at least two business days before excavation takes place.  This service is free of charge and will provide location of ALL underground utilities, not just natural gas.  If you need additional information, you can visit or call the City of Marianna Public Works Department at (850) 482-4129.

What to do if you smell gas in your home or building?

  • Leave the area immediately.  Do not attempt to locate or stop the gas leak.

  • Do not turn any lights on or off, smoke or use any phones or other equipment that could cause sparks.  

  • From a safe distance call Public Works at (850) 482-4129 or after hours at (850) 526-3125 to notify us.
