national lineman appreciation day

National Lineman Appreciation Day. After 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, the 113th Congress passed a bill designating April 18th is National Lineman Appreciation Day. The bill became law in 2013. National Lineman Appreciation Day honors the men and women who work around the clock to keep the power going. If the power is on, you likely have a lineman to thank. 

A lineman’s job is one of the most essential jobs. Electrical linemen are some of the first people on the scene during and directly after a storm when the power goes out. These unsung heroes work with live power lines in challenging environments to keep our power up and running quickly, keeping us comfortable and safe. 

ILLUMAGEAR’S ode to linemen. Fearless with high risk and a strong brotherhood. Linemen forged the backbone of the modern world by creating electricity for the masses. A grid connecting the east to the west and the north to the south sparked the evolution of a new kind of working man. Linemen understand discipline, rewarded by the pride of achievement and the stimulation of work. 

We want to thank all the linemen and women for keeping our country running.
