National Lineman Appreciation Day is Sunday, April 18, 2021.
Here’s some facts about the industry:
- There are approximately 115,000 men/women who are employed as linemen.
- They receive serious training. Linemen go through four years of training before becoming a “journeyman” lineworker.
- Safety is their top priority. All linemen wear PPE. For an example of what our linemen wear, please check out our linemen’s full suit of PPE.
Why do we appreciate them?
- They keep the power running.
- It’s a risky occupation.
- They give up family time for us.
What can you do to help us celebrate National Linemen Appreciation Day?
- If you see them in your area, tell them thank you or send your co-op a note.
- #ThankALineman use this hashtag on social media, or use ours #BREC17 because we have 17 active linemen on the job at Broad River Electric. We love them and thank them for the job they do.
