Prattville celebrated Independence Day with a Hometown Heroes parade that honored utility lineworkers for “their hard work, dedication and selflessness” during restorations from recent storms, including the EF1 tornado that hit the city in May.

Linemen from Alabama Power and Central Alabama Electric Cooperative were grand marshals for the parade, which traveled through downtown from the Autauga County Courthouse to Pratt Park on Saturday morning, July 3. Officials held the parade Saturday because July 4 fell on Sunday this year.

“Us and Central Alabama Electric are being honored for our participation and our hard work that we put in over all the storms we’ve had in the past year,” said Alabama Power Local Operations Lineman Doyle Martin. “It’s nice to be recognized for what we look at as just our job.”
