Operation Lifesaver

About Operation Lifesaver, In Their Words

Operation Lifesaver (OL) is a nonprofit public safety education and awareness organization dedicated to reducing collisions, fatalities and injuries at highway-rail crossings and trespassing on or near railroad tracks. OL is a leader in providing the public with rail safety education and ending death and injuries due to trespassing and collisions on the tracks.

OL’s network of authorized volunteer speakers and trained instructors offer free rail safety education programs in fifty states. The volunteers speak to school groups, driver education classes, community audiences, professional drivers, law enforcement officers, and emergency responders. OL’s programs are co-sponsored by federal, state and local government agencies, highway safety organizations and America's railroads. Together, OL’s volunteers promote the three E’s—education, enforcement and engineering—to keep people safe around the tracks and railway crossings within our communities. Presentations are typically an hour in length and can be tailored to the audience, whether it be a kindergarten class or log truck drivers.
