Clay Electric celebrates linemen on annual appreciation day

On Apr. 9, 2018, Clay Electric honored the dedicated men who often work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on.

The co-op proudly recognizes all electric linemen for the services they perform to keep power flowing and protect the public’s safety.

“Our linemen are the heartbeat of our electric distribution system, and they work around the clock on high-voltage lines,” said General Manager Ricky Davis. “Conditions can be dan­gerous, but they power through to en­sure reliable service for our members.”

More than 100 men maintain over 13,000 miles of line in the co-op’s service terri­tory.

To honor these brave men, Clay Elec­tric hosted breakfasts and other events to celebrate National Lineman Appre­ciation Day.

In 2013, the U.S. Senate passed a resolution designating April 18 as National Lineman Apprecia­tion Day. The NRECA Board then designated the second Monday of each April as National Line­man Appreciation Day.

The resolution represented the first time the NRECA Board has formally recognized a day in honor of linemen.

The full text of the resolution, which the board adopted unanimously:

“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.”
