Training & Volunteer Presenters
Each year, Operation Lifesaver's network of authorized volunteers conduct free programs on rail safety education for hundreds of groups around the country.
Most are volunteers donating personal time to speak with schoolchildren, community organizations, driver ed classes, professional truck and bus drivers, emergency response personnel and law enforcement officers. No matter where they're from, our dedicated volunteers share a common goal: To reduce the likelihood of collisions between people/vehicles and trains through rail safety education.
