National Lineman Appreciation Day

FOX19 -

It’s official: Monday is National Lineman Appreciation Day

Suzy Macke, a lineman with Duke Energy, appeared on FOX19 NOW to talk about being one of only a half a dozen female lineman working for Duke Energy. The day is meant to celebrate and honor line workers and their roles in building and maintaining the electric distribution system, and restoring power after storms.

Ohio Governor Kasich signs resolution encouraging all Ohioans to recognize linemen.

According to the document, “Duke Energy linemen are often first responders during storms and other catastrophic events, working to make the scene safe for other public officials.”

In honor of National Lineman Appreciation Day, Kasich and Taylor, “encourage all Ohioans to join us in recognizing the efforts of linemen in keeping the power on and protecting public safety.”

Additionally, a Kentucky’s House of Representatives resolution states, “Linemen put their lives on the line every day with little recognition from the community regarding the danger of their work.”

You are encouraged to use the hashtag #ThankALineman all day long to show your appreciation.
