Honoring National Lineworker Appreciation Day


On July 10, we honor our crews who are committed to powering our communities safely for National Lineworker Appreciation Day. This recognition carries additional meaning this week, as our frontline workers continue to respond around the clock due to the impacts of Hurricane Beryl.

Entergy joins the Edison Electric Institute, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and other industry groups in observing the holiday in order to recognize the efforts and sacrifices made year-round by lineworkers across the country.

Our lineworkers are the first to respond and deliver for our communities when the lights go out. Despite facing challenging conditions in the Gulf South region, they endure and overcome when called upon. Whether facing brutally freezing temperatures during ice storms, wading through varying depths of mud and water in bayous or responding during the peak heat of Southern summers, our crews constantly work together to safely display their immense expertise, focus and perseverance. Additionally, the contributions of our frontline workers as we continue to restore power to our customers following Hurricane Beryl cannot be understated.

“By nature, to serve as a lineworker requires an intense dedication to one’s community, and I’m thankful for the crews that have chosen to serve our customers every day,” Charles Long, senior vice president of power delivery. “Our lineworkers have already responded with great precision and care during several severe storms this year and continue to stand ready during hurricane season.”
