April 18 is Lineman Appreciation Day

National Lineman Appreciation Day is on April 18, 2016 and provides an opportunity to thank our linemen for the difficult and dangerous work they do.

This day was first recognized by the U.S. Senate by resolution S Res 95 on April 10, 2013, calling attention to the contributions of the brave men and women who protect public safety. (You can read the full resolution at linemanappreciation day.com/nladbill.)

Linemen put their lives on the line every day to ensure the power stays on in the community. They are also typically one of the first on the scene during storms and other catastrophic events. SMECO is very proud of its linemen and the work they do for Southern Maryland.

Celebrate National Lineman Day on April 18 by using #NationalLinemanDay and #thankalineman on social media.
