Thank A Lineman – April 2021

If you were asked to associate an image or a person with Southern Indiana Power, I bet you would picture a lineman. One of the most visible employees of the co-op. “Lineman” is listed as one of the top 10 most dangerous jobs in the U.S. This is understandable as they perform detailed tasks near high-voltage power lines. Regardless of the time of day, having to brave stormy weather and other challenging conditions, lineworkers must climb 40 feet in the air, often carrying heaving equipment to get the job done. Being a lineman takes years of specialized training, ongoing education, dedication, and equally important, a sense of service and commitment. How else can you explain the willingness to leave the comfort of your home to tackle a challenging job in difficult conditions, when most are sheltering at home? This dedication and sense of service to the community is truly what sets them apart. That’s why we set aside the second Monday in April to celebrate and recognize the men who work
around the clock to keep the lights on. Our dedicated and beloved lineman are proud to represent Southern Indiana Power, and they deserve all the appreciation and accolades that
come their way on Lineman Appreciation Day. On April 12, and any time you see a lineman, we hope you’ll join us in thanking them for their exceptional service.
