Aug. 26 is Florida Lineworker Appreciation Day: a holiday created to show gratitude to the men and women who risk their lives daily to ensure reliable delivery of electricity throughout Florida.
This day of recognition was designated by the Florida House of Representatives in 2012 in memory of Marc Moore, a lineworker for Lakeland Electric who was tragically killed while serving his community in 2002.
On this special day, show a little love for the lineworkers who are our hometown heroes by posting notes of thanks on your social media accounts. Be sure to use hashtags #ThankALineman, #LineLife and #LineworkerAppreciationDay.
