Operation Lifesaver, Inc. Releases 2019 Annual Report, 2020 Rail Safety Week Results Report
WASHINGTON, DC, December 15, 2020 – Operation Lifesaver, Inc. (OLI),the national rail safety education nonprofit, has released digital versions of two new reports: a 2019 Annual Report and a Rail Safety Week 2020 Results Report.
Every three hours a person or vehicle is hit by a train in the United States.OLI’s mission is to empower the public to make safe choices when driving or walking near tracks and trains.
OLI’s 2019 Annual Report illustrates the organization's impact, including event highlights, grant projects, increased education outreach numbers as well as the 2019 audited financial statement.
The Rail Safety Week 2020 Results Report summarizes the U.S. success of this year’s Rail Safety Week effort, held September 21-27 throughout North America. Millions were reached through social media messaging, Public Service Announcements, and the activities of many organizations.
“The successes and achievements presented in both the Annual Report and the Rail Safety Week Report would not be possible without the commitment and support of OLI’s many partners who are committed to rail safety,” said Operation Lifesaver Inc. Executive Director Rachel Maleh. “Our Annual Report shows the passion, commitment, creativity and dedication of OLI’s board, state programs, volunteers, partners and staff. Rail Safety Week is a consolidated week focusing on our collaborative efforts to reduce collisions, fatalities and injuries at highway-rail crossings and trespassing prevention on or near railroad tracks. Both reports highlight the important work that the larger OLI family does on the local, state and national level,” she stated.
The OLI online reports are designed for optimal viewing on laptops or desktops but are also mobile-friendly. Downloadable pdfs of the two interactive reports will be available in January at www.oli.org.
