sthside electrc prodiverCrewe – Southside Electric Cooperative (SEC) is recognizing Friday, April 18, 2014, as National Lineman Appreciation Day to honor the hardworking individuals 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 always receive the recognition they deserve,” said Jeff Edwards, SEC president & CEO. “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 own linemen, as well as those from all across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”
SEC invites members to take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do. Drop a note to us on our website or show your support on our Facebook page @
