Line techs enjoy lunch compliments of OUC.

OUC treated line crews to lunch in honor of Florida Lineworker Appreciation Day, Thursday, Aug. 26. Crew leaders picked up Jimmy John’s boxed lunches at our Pershing facility and distributed them to their teams, some working out in the field. Vendor Milwaukee Tools also recognized the occasion by purchasing “Florida Lineworker Appreciation Day” T-shirts for OUC line techs. Michael Cartolano, Sr. Marketing Designer, designed the logo.

Florida Lineworker Appreciation Day pays tribute to lineworkers for all they do to ensure the reliable delivery of electricity throughout the state. It was designated by the Florida House of Representatives in 2012 in memory of a Lakeland Electric line technician who lost his life while working on a utility pole in 2002.
