Celebrate National Lineman Appreciation Day


America’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day. On April 13, 2015, Delaware Electric Cooperative will honor the hard working employees who often work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on. 

We proudly recognize all electric linemen for the services they perform around the clock in dangerous conditions to keep power flowing and protect the public’s safety. 

“Electric linemen do not often receive the recognition they deserve,” said Bill Andrew, President and CEO of Delaware Electric Co-op. “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 linemen, as well as linemen from across the nation, truly deserve this special day of recognition.”

The Co-op invites members to take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do by posting on Delaware Electric Cooperative’s Facebook page. Visit www.facebook.com/delawareelectric and let our linemen know what you think of their hard work!
