2021 T&D World Lineman Supplement: What's in Store

June 14, 2021
This year's edition will highlight women lineworkers, technology in storm restoration, linemen on specialized helicopter teams and bridging the knowledge gap in the line trade.

This October, T&D World looks forward to welcoming linemen and their families to Kansas City for the annual International Lineman's Rodeo. At the event, we will be distributing our annual Lineman Supplement, which is published in September 2021 to celebrate the line trade. 

For this year's issue, we will be highlighting the following topics. If you or someone on your crew would like to participate in any of these stories, please email Field Editor Amy Fischbach. You will have the opportunity to review the story as both a Word document and as a PDF before it goes online or in the print supplement. 

1. Women in Line Work: Highlight women lineworkers

2. Technology in Storm Response: Talk about drones and other technology and how it is transforming storm restoration. 

3. Linemen and Helicopters: Focus on how helicopters are used in line work to improve efficiency in the field

4. Bridging the Knowledge Gap: Transferring knowledge from veteran journeymen to new apprentices

We look forward to hearing from you! Be sure to pick up your copy of the Lineman Supplement this October at the Lineman's Expo and check out the stories in our Lineman Life enewsletter and on our Web site later on this year. Again, if you have any good photos or lineman contacts to share, email Field Editor Amy Fischbach
