Remember to thank a lineman

Posted on Mar 30 2020 in Harrison REMC

Lineworkers serve on the front lines of our nation’s energy needs. On April 13, Harrison REMC, along with other electric cooperatives across the country, will honor the brave men and women who work hard to keep the lights on. 

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 the co-op. 

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. 

Harrison REMC is proud to honor the co-op’s 21 lineworkers who maintain 2,475 miles of power lines in our service territory. 

Harrison REMC invites all co-op members to take a moment and thank a lineworker for the important work they do. On April 13, you can use #ThankALineworker on social media or send an email to to show your support for the brave men and women who power our lives.
