When storms hit or disaster strikes and the power goes out, they are the first responders, regardless of time or day. They put in countless hours maintaining the power lines that power our lives.
To honor those workers, Monday, April 12, is Nebraska Lineworkers Appreciation Day.
At OPPD, there are 163 linemen, including crew leaders, journeymen apprentices and troubleshooters. They are part of a tight and proud group of workers who do a dangerous job. And they do it under the most extreme conditions – blazing heat, pouring rain and frigid winter storms.
So take the time and join us in thanking a lineworker for all they do. Below is a gallery of OPPD line crews through the years.
