Indiana Governor Holcomb Recognizes Lineworkers


April 18, 2023—Today, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb issued an Executive Order Proclamation declaring April 18, 2023 as Lineworker Appreciation Day in the State of Indiana.

Lineworkers work day and night to keep our state’s lights on, risking their lives to provide our homes and businesses with power. Working on power lines requires the upmost skill, expertise, teamwork, and patience. With frequent exposure to hazardous heights, high voltages, and a heavily trafficked work environment, the job is consistently ranked as one of the most hazardous in the United States. Despite this, our lineworkers remain committed to the essential duty of power delivery.

The Indiana Municipal Power Agency would like to join Governor Holcomb in recognizing and celebrating lineworkers for their dedication in keeping the power on and the public safe.
