April 18 was designated National Lineman’s Appreciation Day by a resolution that won unanimous approval in the U.S. Senate.
Senate Resolution 95 honors "the contributions of these brave men and women who protect public safety," noting that lineworkers are often first responders during storms and other catastrophic events, "working to make the scene safe for other public safety heroes."
Lineworkers "put their lives on the line every day with little recognition from the community regarding the danger of their work," said the resolution, which was cosponsored by Sens. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo.
