Summary
It's not just Wichita - Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Lineman Appreciation Day

April 18th is National Linemen Appreciation Day, and while other first responders may take center stage, these men and women who keep the power pumping are on the front lines as well.

Established in 2013, it is a day to honor those who put their lives on the line to keep the lights on.

On April 10, 2013, U.S. Senate Resolution 95 set April 18th as National Lineman Appreciation Day. This was following 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, which affected 24 states across the US, downing power lines and causing some $65 billion in damage along the way.

It was after this historic tragedy that line crews across the U.S. stepped up by the thousands to help get the country get running again. Also, it took rebuilding the country’s power systems from the ground-up. This dedication to keeping the country moving forward is what inspired the 113th Congress to pass the bill creating a national holiday to celebrate these invaluable professionals.

Linemen work with thousands of volts of electricity, high atop power lines for 24 hours a day to keep electricity flowing to people’s homes and businesses. The work of a lineman can sometimes go unnoticed in the community and the workers do not receive recognition for what they do.

This day may be observed on different dates - for instance, Nebraska marks National Lineman Day on April 12th.
