Southport/Oak Island District
Dedication to the membership is second nature to the linemen of BEMC. They find another gear when the power is out, because they have a connection to those they serve. They work all hours of the day or night, in extreme conditions, so that power restoration times can be as low as possible. Missing family events is part of the sacrifice. It’s hard work that requires 7,000 hours of training, and not everyone can do it. They say you have to be “cut from the cloth”.
This commitment comes from the top down, because the leadership came up the ranks themselves, understanding exactly how much the membership was counting on them. It was their family, friends and neighbors they were serving, and doing the very best job they could, no matter the circumstances, was something ingrained in them from day one. And so the tradition continues, with exceptionally dedicated and expert linemen glad to be at your service today.
