NORTHWESTERN ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, INC.


April 2015 NWEC celebrates National Lineman Appreciation Day


merica’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Line- man Appreciation Day.


On April 13, 2015, NWEC will honor the hard working men and women who often work in challeng- ing conditions to keep the lights on.


The full text of the resolution, which the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Board adopted unanimously, follows: “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 dan- gerous 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 rec- ognize the contributions of these valuable men and women to America’s Electric Cooperatives.” We proudly recognize all electric linemen for the services they perform around the clock in danger- ous conditions to keep power flowing and protect the public’s safety.


“Electric linemen do not often receive the recogni- tion they deserve,” said Tyson Littau, CEO. “They work all hours of the day, often in hazardous condi- tions far from their families, going above and beyond to restore power to their communities. Our linemen, as well as linemen from across the nation, truly de- serve this special day of recognition.”
