Operation Lifesaver

Operation Lifesaver is sponsored by The Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada and works in co-operation with the Canada Safety Council and provincial safety councils/ leagues. This active, continuing public education program is designed to heighten general public awareness of the potential hazards of rail/highway grade crossings and to urge caution by drivers and pedestrians when in their vicinity. The program also seeks to inform the public of the dangers associated with trespassing on railway property. The goal is to reduce the number of accidents that result in fatalities, injuries, and monetary losses.
