Abstract: In an effort to prevent damage to underground facilities by anyone doing excavating work in the vicinity of them. The East Ohio Gas Company, The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and The Ohio Bell Telephone Company were responsible in 1971 for forming a committee to develop a one call covers all contractors notification system. The one call covers all name was short-lived, however, as the organizers discovered an insurance company used a similar slogan, so they adopted the name Utilities Protection Service (U.P.S.). Since the committee was formed by three utilities with headquarters in Cleveland, it was decided to develop the one call system in the greater Cleveland area by covering the Cuyahoga and Lake County area first.
