In early April, BEC launched a social media campaign asking its members and employees to show their support of linemen by sharing a photo of BEC linemen. Using the hashtag #ThankALineman, the campaign surpassed its goal with more than 3,100 likes, comments and shares on social media.
The Fallen Linemen Organization is a nonprofit organization that supports families of deceased linemen with financial and moral support and promotes industry safety awareness.
