In 2012, Representative Seth McKeel introduced a resolution to the Florida House of Representatives which called for the declaration of Lineworker Appreciation Day on August 26, 2012. Since then, Florida citizens have been recognizing these lineworkers on an annual basis for their willingness to work in possibly hazardous conditions to ensure citizens maintain electric power. The resolution states: “The nationwide electrical grid must be maintained and operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year despite inclement weather, hurricanes, tornadoes, and various other possible hazards, and this vital service is performed by 114,000 skilled men and women known as electrical lineworkers…”
Absolute Consulting has employed a solid team of local lineworkers in the Florida Panhandle area since 2011 (pictured below). On this special day, and every day, Absolute Consulting is incredibly thankful for their hard work and dedication.
