About MI OL
Michigan Operation Lifesaver is an active, continuous public information and education program designed to help prevent crashes at highway/rail grade-crossings. In addition, the goal is to eliminate trespasser incidents along the railroad rights-of-way.
The 3 "E"s of Operation Lifesaver are: Education, Engineering, and Enforcement. Each has a role in our attempt to reduce the over 500 fatal crashes and over 600 trespasser fatalities that occur each year.
States across the U.S. and several foreign countries have OL programs. MI OL's trained volunteer presenters will come to your organization to make an interesting presentation.
Michigan Operation Lifesaver is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.

Do you have a group that would benefit from a free presentation on highway-rail grade crossing safety and rail trespass prevention? No problem.
Michigan Operation Lifesaver's network of Operation Lifesaver Authorized Volunteers (OLAV) offer free rail safety programs in school classrooms, to driver ed students, community service and civic groups, professional bus, truck and emergency first responder drivers and others.
