How 42,000 Line workers showed what makes America Great.

Lineman Central has been reporting on Hurricane Ian recovery efforts for the past week.

The Great Lineman Response to Hurricane Ian

On Wednesday, Ian smashed into southwest Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, pulverizing coastal homes and trapping residents with floodwaters, especially in the Fort Myers and Naples areas. It pushed inland into Thursday, bringing strong winds and damaging flooding to central and northeastern areas.

Enter the American Lineman. The often forgotten, unsung hero that few think about when the word first responder is said.

We saw a huge uptick on The Lineman Central National Work Database.

Lineworkers across the country began taking jobs that would put them on the trail to Florida.

Where Lineman Traveled from for Hurricane Ian

Line workers make the Drive into Florida

Duke Energy played a key role in helping coordinate these efforts. Duke sent nearly 800 line workers from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana in addition to 10,000 lineworkers from other parts of the southeast to help with power outages in Florida amid Hurricane Ian.
