JCP&L Celebrates Lineman Appreciation DayMay 01, 2019 -
Jersey Central Power and Light serves the Jersey Shore area.
When you flip a light switch, you expect a light to turn on. Most people don’t give much thought to the workers responsible for their service until the lights go out during a power outage.
As part of Lineman Appreciation Day, JCP&L recognized those people who put their lives on the line to provide the electric service we depend on each day.
The power company says, “Our linemen work all hours of the day—often in hazardous conditions, going above and beyond to restore power to customers, like you. All line workers across the nation truly deserve this special day of recognition.”
Nearly 2,500 line workers are employed at FirstEnergy’s 10 electric utility companies including New Jersey. Some have been with the company for decades or have strong family ties to the industry, while others are just starting their careers having completed the company’s Power Systems Institute line worker training program.
