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 trespassers fatalities that occur each year.
All 50 states and 13 foreign countries have OL programs with volunteer presenters at the grassroots level who will come to your organization to make an interesting presentation.
Michigan Operation Lifesaver is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.
