Our Heroes Wear Hard Hats

Message from General Manager/CEO Jeff Lane

Line work is not a glamorous or easy profession. It takes years of specialized training and ongoing education and, equally important, a sense of service and commitment to your community. How else can you explain the willingness of lineworkers to leave the comfort of their homes to tackle a challenging job in difficult conditions, when most other folks are sheltering safely with their families?

This dedication and service is truly what sets our lineworkers apart. That’s why Trinity Valley Electric Cooperative, and electric coopearatives across the country, set aside the second Monday in April—April 8 this year—to celebrate and recognize the men and women who work around the clock to keep the lights on.

We join other electric cooperatives across our state and nation in celebrating Lineworker Appreciation Day to recognize those workers’ critical roles in providing our members with the power they depend on.

Every day, lineworkers face immense risks. Carrying heavy gear, they regularly scale 40-foot poles near high-voltage power lines, often in the wake of Mother Nature’s worst. It’s no wonder their profession is among the most dangerous in the country.

No matter the weather, time or conditions, TVEC lineworkers are committed to providing the best service possible for members.

TVEC’s lineworkers maintain thousands of miles of power lines, keeping the lights on for our members. Our lineworkers are heroes in every sense of the word. As the first responders of our workforce, we count on them to get us through some of our darkest hours, day or night. They truly deserve this special day of recognition.

We appreciate our dedicated lineworkers and are proud of their commitment to our members. They deserve all the appreciation and accolades that come their way.

On April 8, and any time you see a lineworker, we hope you’ll take a moment to thank them for their dedication to serving TVEC members.
