If you're unaware, ever since 2013 via a resolution in the U.S. Senate, April 18 has been recognized as National Lineman Appreciation Day. All across the country, on Monday, April 18, there will be a shout-out to #ThankALineman. 

But here at Energy Central, in partnership with Quanta Services, we didn't want to keep our thanks to just one day. Instead, we will be thanking the industry's frontline workers every day this week with some unique content shared in the community.

All this week, keep an eye on our Lineman Appreciation Page, where this great content will be published, including:

  • Interviews with linemen
  • Videos shared on the job by linemen
  • Thought pieces from utility executives about how they treasure their lineman

And more!

Also, if you're inspired to #ThankALineman, we invite you to participate in our celebration. You can comment or ask questions on any of the above content and or you can even share a post highlighting the linemen at your organization and the work they're doing, Don't forget to use the special topic tag: Lineman Appreciation Day 2022

Content that is now live for you to check out:

 

And a special thanks to our Partner Quanta Services for supporting this initiative!

These are some unsung hero's. I can't imagine a more dangerous job. The high power transmission lines are very big and lots of power yet an electrician can even get hurt or die on a 120 volt line at 1 amp. A very dangerous job indeed. Thanks for bringing this to light Matt.

Linemen (and women) are some of the most courageous people I've met in my lifetime. They are unsung heroes, not seeking the spotlight, they just go about doing their job every day, in some of the worst conditions imaginable. Linemen and women - thank you for your service.
