Fallen Linemen license plate available on March 14

The “Honoring Fallen Linemen” license plate will be available beginning March 14.

Ohio residents will soon be able to honor fallen linemen with a new license plate.

Starting March 14, the “Honoring Fallen Linemen” plate will be available for ordering at Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles offices and on OPLATES.

Proceeds from plate sales will go to the Fallen Linemen Organization, which seeks to memorialize fallen electrical line workers and care for the families who have lost or are impacted by a severe injury of a loved one in the line of duty.

The plate was created through the approval of the Ohio General Assembly at the end of the 2016 legislative session, with Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives strongly supporting the effort.
