On Monday, April 10, 2017, Wheatland Electric will join cooperatives from across the nation to recognize the employees who keep the lights on.
We proudly recognize all electric linemen for the work they perform around the clock and in particular the 70-plus linemen at Wheatland for their service to the co-op and our members.
Perhaps you have seen them raising their bucket trucks in howling winds and torrential rains, or in freezing, icy conditions. They work around the clock near high-voltage power lines until electricity is restored to every member in our co-op community.
In addition to aiding members in our local service territory, lineworkers are always willing and eager to volunteer when a neighboring community, county or state is in need after a major outage occurs.
Please join us by taking a moment to personally thank a lineman for the work he or she does.
Use #ThankALineman in your social media posts on April 10 to show support for our Wheatland linemen who make our lives easier every day
