Fallen Linemen Organization’s mission is to memorialize fallen electrical line workers, and care for the families who have lost or are impacted by a severe injury of a loved one in the line of duty. We strive to consolidate accident and injury information to share openly for a safer work environment.
With your generous donation, you are part of a movement to keep families supported through financial and emotional support after the loss of a loved one or after they are impacted by a severe injury of a loved one in the line of duty.
We are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization. We started this organization to UNITE, RECOGNIZE, SUPPORT, AND MEMORIALIZE ALL FALLEN LINEMAN. WE BASE THIS ORGANIZATION ON THE HEART OF ALL LINEMEN.
We would like to nationally recognize the Lineman Trade for its 24/7 on call dedication. Linemen work under unforgiving, hazardous conditions, in extreme weather, wearing fire-resistant clothing, rubber gloves, and sleeves. Being an electrical lineman is a skill that takes years to master, and requires tremendous physical stamina and knowledge. These characteristics set the electric utility lineman apart from all other trades.
Our Fallen Lineman Organization is a central location for the families of ALL fallen linemen to seek out moral and financial support.
A memorial to recognize ALL Fallen Lineman for the ultimate sacrifice they gave to their trade. It will be a place where the public could honor those who have given their lives keeping “our” lights on.
There are many similar organizations throughout the U.S. We want our organization to recognize their causes, help support them, and bring national attention to the Lineman Trade.
Why We Started
The electric line industry employs approximately 200,000 hard working men and women and is in the top five for most dangerous jobs. It takes approximately another 150,000 workers to support these linemen and linewomen. Due to the aging infrastructure around the country and storms that devastate communities, these men and women are forced to work in extremely hazardous conditions. They perform their duties without expecting recognition or praise with devout dedication. These men and women are proud to call themselves linemen. Of those employed, an average of 45 linemen a year loses their lives in the line of duty, leaving families who depend on them. We appreciate their work on the line that is often taken for granted. We set up this organization to do exactly what our mission statement says: To memorialize fallen electrical line workers and care for their families by providing moral and financial support. Linemen, thank you for your work on the unforgiving line.
