Thank you to our line mechanics

April 18 is National Lineman Appreciation Day, a time to recognize the contributions of the men and women who keep the lights on for our customers.

The U.S. Senate designated April 18 as National Linemen Appreciation Day two years ago with a special resolution. Senate Resolution 95 is a resolution “recognizing linemen, the profession of linemen, the contributions of these brave men and women who protect public safety, and expressing support for the designation of April 18 as National Lineman Appreciation Day.”

“Our linemen are the backbone of our company,” said Kevin Fletcher, our senior vice president – customer operations. “These men and women work around the clock in all types of weather to ensure our customers have power. We can’t thank them enough for the important and dangerous work they do, putting their lives on the line to protect public safety and keep our system intact.”
