Lineman Appreciation Day

 

 

Nebraska Rural Electric Association Celebrates National Lineman Appreciation Day

 

 NREA is recognizing April 18, 2014, as National Lineman Appreciation Day to honor the hardworking men who work often in challenging conditions to keep the power on.

We are recognizing all electric linemen for the services they perform around the clock in dangerous conditions to keep the power on and protect the public’s safety.

“Electric linemen do not often receive the recognition they deserve,” said Troy Bredenkamp, General Manager, NREA. “They work all hours of the day, often in hazardous conditions far from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their communities. Our linemen, as well as linemen from all across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”
