#ThankALineman: April 10 is National Lineman Appreciation Day
#ThankALineman on April 10, 2017
Lineworkers serve on the frontlines of our nation’s energy needs, and on April 10, 2017, Owen Electric Cooperative will honor the men and women who work in challenging and often dangerous conditions to keep the lights on.
We are proud to recognize all electric lineworkers for the services they perform around the clock in difficult conditions to keep power flowing and protect the public’s safety.
“Lineworkers are the first responders of our electric cooperative, and they’re always ready to get the job done, day or night,” said Mark Stallons, President and CEO. “Whether they’re restoring power after a major storm or maintaining critical infrastructure to our electric system, lineworkers are at the heart of everything we do.”
Owen Electric is proud to honor the lineworkers that maintain 5,700 miles of power lines in our service territory.
In early celebration of Lineman Appreciation Day, a breakfast was held for lineworkers last Friday, complete with goodie bags.
Owen Electric invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the work they do. On April 10, use #ThankALineman on social media to show your support for the men and women who light our lives.
