Lineworkers serve on the front lines of our nation’s energy needs, and on April 13, Southwest Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation, along with other electric cooperatives across the country, will honor the brave men and women who work hard to keep the lights on.
When a storm hits, they set aside their personal priorities because Mother Nature doesn’t work around holidays, vacations and birthdays. A service-oriented mentality is one of the many admirable characteristics of an electric lineworker.
To perform their jobs successfully, lineworkers depend on their years of training, experience and each other to get the job done safely.
Equally important is their reliance on a strong support system at home. A lineworker’s family understands and supports their loved one’s commitment to the greater community during severe storms and power outages.
Line crews work around the clock, sometimes in difficult and dangerous conditions, to keep power flowing to our local communities. Whether they’re restoring power after a major storm or maintaining critical infrastructure to our electric system, lineworkers are at the heart of our co-op.
Southwest Tennessee EMC is proud to honor our 56 lineworkers who maintain 4,000 miles of power lines serving more than 50,000 consumer-members in our 11-county service area.
STEMC invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank our lineworkers for the important work they do for our communities.
On April 13, you can use #ThankALineworker on social media to show your support for the brave men and women who power our lives.
