Thank a Lineman on April 12 – and Always

America’s electric cooperatives designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. Today, Escambia River Electric Cooperative honors the dedicated men and women who often work in challenging and dangerous conditions to keep the lights on. We proudly recognize all lineworkers for the services they perform around the clock to keep power flowing and protect the public’s safety.

A career as a lineman is not for everyone. But most of those who have chosen this line of work could not see themselves doing anything else. It’s hard work, requires commitment and sacrifice, but creates a brotherhood bond like no other.
