Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corp., in conjunction with cooperatives across the nation, celebrates National Lineman Appreciation Day on Friday.
The recently passed resolution recognizes linemen for their contributions to public safety.
"Linemen across our service territory work every day building and repairing lines, ensuring the overall reliability of the system," said MTEMC President Chris Jones. "They are also the unsung heroes who stand at the ready to respond to outages caused by storms, accidents or anything else that may knock out the power. They are the ones who, through their tireless efforts, help ensure the system reliability of your member-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperative."
MTEMC linemen work hard in all types of weather, performing daily maintenance projects and also quickly respond to outages 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
“Take a moment to thank a lineman for the work they do Friday,” Jones said. “Make sure and use #ThankaLineman on social media to show your support.”
Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation is a member-owned, nonprofit cooperative providing electricity to more than 196,000 residential and business members in Williamson, Wilson, Rutherford and Cannon counties.
