National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Board Resolution (2015):
“Whereas linemen leave their families and put their lives on the line every day to keep the power on; Whereas linemen work 365 days a year under dangerous conditions to build, maintain and repair the electric infrastructure; Whereas linemen are the first responders of the electric cooperative family, getting power back on and making things safe for all after storms and accidents; and Whereas there would be no electric cooperatives without the brave men and women who comprise our corps of linemen; Therefore be it resolved that NRECA recognize the Second Monday of April of each year as National Lineman Appreciation Day and make available to electric cooperatives, materials and support to recognize the contributions of these valuable men and women to America’s Electric Cooperatives.”
Our linemen are dedicated to serving the members of South Plains Electric Cooperative. No matter the time of day or what the weather conditions are, these guys are dedicated to serving our members to ensure they all have reliable power 24/7. They take pride in their jobs and focus on performing the tasks accurately and safely.
So, the next time you see linemen out and about, be sure to thank them for their service to the Co-op family.
