Lineworker Appreciation Day
Recognized annually on the second Monday in April, Lineworker Appreciation Day pays tribute to the dedicated men and women whose skill and expertise is needed to build, maintain and repair the power lines that provide electricity to cooperative members. Gibson Electric Membership Corporation honors these dedicated men and women who often perform their duties in dangerous conditions to keep the lights on. Whether they are restoring power during a storm or providing life-saving advice during safety programs, we proudly recognize all electric lineworkers who work hard to support local cooperative efforts.
Our lineworkers are responsible for keeping over 3,500 miles of line across 12 counties working to bring safe, reliable power to your home and our local community 24/7, regardless of the weather, holidays or personal considerations.
Gibson EMC invites members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the work they do. Throughout the month of April, use #ThankaLineworker to show your support for the men and women who are the power behind your power.
