PSE&G Tips a Hardhat to Lineworkers
April 18th is National Lineman Appreciation Day

April 19, 2017

In honor of National Lineman Appreciation Day, Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G), New Jersey's largest utility, salutes the men and women dedicated to keeping the electricity flowing for their customers every day, in all types of weather conditions. When the public is asked to stay safe at home during and after a storm, linemen and linewomen come to work.

"I'm always proud, but never surprised, by their commitment to their jobs," said John Latka, senior vice president of electric and gas operations for PSE&G. "On a blue-sky day, you'll find our linemen building and maintaining the electric infrastructure that is so critical to powering our lives. During and after storms, their efforts are nothing less than heroic. They work 16-hour shifts until every last customer is restored."

PSE&G has some 600 linemen and linewomen who play a vital role in ensuring that customers have the best-in-class service that they expect and deserve. Behind the scenes, around the clock and 365 days a year, linemen are always ready and available. And when another utility needs help with storm preparation or restoration, PSE&G lineworkers heed the call for help.

To participate in honoring line workers and their families, use the hashtag #thankalineman on social media.
