In January, Grantsboro lineman Michael Baldwin traveled to Central Virginia Electric Cooperative (CVEC) as part of a mutual aid team. A total of six Tideland linemen assisted CVEC with power restoration.

National Lineworker Appreciation Day is celebrated each year on April 18 and honors the hard work, innovation and dedication of America’s electrical lineworkers. Since 2013, Tideland EMC has annually participated in this celebration to honor these dedicated members of our workforce.

We proudly recognize all electric linemen for the service they perform around the clock in inherently hazardous conditions to keep power flowing and protect public safety. This includes not only our own line personnel, but our line construction contractors who do much of the heavy lifting in Tideland territory.

Electric utility lineworkers put their lives on the line every day to keep our economy running and power our homes, schools, businesses, and hospitals. The nature of the occupation requires a culture of safety ingrained in both our industry and our co-op. Thanks to the lessons and sacrifices of pioneers in the field and ongoing improvements in science, technology, equipment and employee wellness programs, the environment in which our line crews works is safer than ever. But the basic building block of safety in our industry still rests in every team member doing his or her part to ensure everyone goes home safe and sound at the end of each workday. That’s why so many view their occupation as a brotherhood.

We hope you will join us in saluting our crews on National Lineworker Appreciation Day.
