Operation Lifesaver Welcomes Five New State Coordinators

Five new leaders are in place for rail safety nonprofit Operation Lifesaver state programs in Delaware, Illinois, Montana, South Carolina and the Dakotas (representing North and South Dakota).

State coordinators oversee their state’s volunteers to provide free rail safety presentations specialized for a variety of audiences to include K-12 students, professional truck drivers, new drivers, first responders and more. The new state coordinators actively participated in orientation training this month, immersing themselves in their roles and familiarizing themselves with their responsibilities.

Operation Lifesaver is a non-profit public safety education and awareness organization dedicated to reducing collisions, fatalities and injuries at highway-rail crossings and preventing trespassing on or near railroad tracks. The national Operation Lifesaver organization works with its programs in 47 states and the District of Columbia to help stop track tragedies.

“We enthusiastically welcome our newest state coordinators and applaud their deep commitment and unwavering dedication to rail safety,” said OLI Executive Director Rachel Maleh. “State Coordinators are an integral part of making their communities safer – managing rail safety outreach and education throughout their states.”

Operation Lifesaver is fortunate to have these five terrific leaders on board,” Maleh added. “They will do an excellent job empowering their citizens to make safe choices around railroad tracks and trains – preparing them to know the facts, make good decisions and share the rail safety message. Together, we can stop track tragedies.”
