Celebrating Operation Lifesaver's 50th Anniversary
In 2022, Operation Lifesaver (OL) celebrated 50 Years of Rail Safety! Since OL’s inception in 1972, collisions at railroad crossings have dropped by over 80%. But there is more work to do – every three hours in the U.S., a person or vehicle is hit by a train.
Our national network of trained volunteers gives free rail safety presentations across the U.S.
Thanks for helping celebrate #50YearsOfRailSafety throughout 2022.
Operation Lifesaver is a mission driven rail safety education non-profit powered by dedicated people. OL has a long, proud history of sharing the rail safety message.
With programs in 47 states and the District of Columbia, we're making a difference and saving lives in communities around the country.
