The NRECA recognizes Monday, April 8, 2019 as National Lineman Appreciation Day this year. What does it mean to be a lineman?
Linemen leave their families and put their lives on the line every day to keep the power on. They work 365 days a year under dangerous conditions to build, maintain, and repair the electric infrastructure, and they are the first responders of the electric cooperative family, getting power back on and making things safe for all after storms and accidents. There would be no electric cooperatives without the brave men and women who comprise our corps of lineworkers. A Big “THANK YOU” to our Choptank Electric Cooperative Linemen!
