(KFVS) - This job isn't for everyone, especially those of us who are afraid of heights. So thank a lineman today, on National Lineman Appreciation Day.

The day falls on April 18 each year.

These are the men and women who give our homes, power plants and more power to keep running. They are in dangerous conditions each day but especially when the power goes out.

Due to the dangerous conditions power poses, safety is of utmost importance for both the lineman and the consumer.
