You've likely noticed Lane-Scott Electric's crews out and about, working on power lines and other electrical equipment in our community. It's no secret that a lineworker's job is tough - but it's a job that's essential and must be done, often in challenging conditions. This month, as we celebrate Lineworker Appreciation Day on April 11, I thought I'd share some interesting facts about electric lineworkers with you.
