What is a Lineman?

 Linemen are talented, dedicated professionals who do difficult and critical job that benefits society.  The work is varied and exciting and the rewards are plentiful. 

A lineman builds and maintains the electrical power system.  They do all the work from the point of generation (power plants) all the way to the customer’s meter.  The lines may be on overhead structures (up to 300ft) or in underground vaults and trenches.  They may be in rural or metropolitan areas.

Linemen often assemble and erect metal towers and wood poles along with the installation of footings, hardware, conductors and other related equipment.  Linemen are also first responders during an emergency.  They are out in the field, assessing the situation and finding a way to safely repair powerlines and equipment to get power back to everyone.
