Brandon Chambers has been a Georgia Power lineman for over fifteen years.
He, along with many others, works tirelessly to make sure that the lights stay on in Georgia.
Chambers says it can be a dangerous job and that linemen are always on call.
So when severe storms sweep through our area and cause power outages, residents can expect Georgia Power to be on the scene to help restore the electricity.
“We have to leave our families. When the weather gets rough, we’re leaving the house while everyone else is taking shelter,” Chamber mentions.
Being a lineman can be a tough job, but Georgia Power is celebrating the men and women that take on the position.
Throughout April, Georgia Power has been encouraging people to “Thank a Lineman.”
Those interested in showing their appreciation can go to this site and leave a note of thanks for the linemen.
“We come out, work hard, get the lights back on, and people thank you,” Chambers adds.
People can also read other stories about linemen by following “#ThankaLineman” on social media.
