FRISCO, Texas – FC Dallas and Toyota continue to take care of those who are taking care of the community. Today, Rosa’s Café provided gift cards for Taco Tuesday Plates to CoServ linemen and gas technicians in advance of National Lineman Appreciation Day which is Saturday, April 18, 2020. The electric cooperative’s linemen and service personnel are working around the clock to ensure consumers have power during this time as much of the workforce has shifted to a remote work environment.
"I would like to thank FC Dallas for recognizing CoServ's linemen and our gas technicians for National Lineman Appreciation Day,” Shea Hassell, CoServ Director of Operations. “We are all grateful for the folks in the healthcare and first responder job roles, especially with the current situation, and it’s a great thing for our guys to be recognized with them. Our linemen and gas techs are hard at work and committed to keeping the lights and heat on and allowing us all to enjoy a higher quality of life.”
