I want everyone to take notice of this gent... despite the media moving on to the next big story, @east_coast_lineman and hundreds of guys just like him, have continued to work countless hours trying to give some degree of normalcy back to the folks impacted by Hurricane Florence. Dillon and his brothers have given what food and water they have to the folks they are there to help. Some will say that they do this for the paycheck.... this is a fallacy and could not be further from the truth. You don’t wade through swamps or spend your days soaked to the bone because you are after a paycheck. You do it because you love your neighbor and understand that with your training and knowledge comes a higher expectation and obligation to serve. Being a Journeyman Lineman comes with an unspoken obligation that when Mother Nature deals us a losing hand, or life rears its ugly it’s head, we saddle up and ride into the fray ready to do what needs to be done. Thank you, Dillion. Please give our sincere regard to those serving with you .

Though storms are long rough hours and we are exhausted, wet, irritable at times, chafed, sore, hurting, sick and often hungry we as lineman should NOT let these things distract us from being on our A game with safety! Everybody is tired, but everybody needs to stay focused. Storms are dangerous but now is when they get even more dangerous when we are running on fumes. We are a strong breed, we are machines but we are in danger if we allow ourselves to take shortcuts. THINK, and LOOK before you make a move!! Be safe! Have a great day! And most importantly BE YOUR BROTHERS KEEPER!!!! #eastcoastlineman #iammybrotherskeeper #linework #lineman #highclasslinetrash
