National Lineman Appreciation Day will be celebrated Sunday, April 18th as proclaimed by the U.S. Senate in a 2013 resolution.
More than 115,000 men and women across the country have answered the call to public service by putting their lives “on the line” to keep electricity flowing to our homes and businesses. Many work for municipal systems like Decatur Utilities. These front-line heroes are our friends and neighbors. Regardless of the weather or time of night, they respond in a moment’s notice to restore service.
So, if you see a DU line crew out working along the side of the road, give them three quick honks to let them know how much you appreciate them!
