FRA awards $1 million grant to Operation Lifesaver

Posted on May 16, 2003

The Federal Railroad Administration awarded a $1 million grant to Operation Lifesaver Inc. (OLI), the nonprofit railroad safety education organization based in Alexandria, Va. The safety-oriented grant enables OLI to conduct wide-ranging public education and awareness programs related to highway-rail grade crossing safety and railroad trespassing. OLI programs include training and education modules developed especially for primary and secondary school educators and students, general audiences, law enforcement and others. In addition, OLI performs specialized communication outreach programs such as providing print and broadcast public service announcements to news media. A portion of the grants will also be used to fund dedicated regional and local outreach and programming. To learn more about Operation Lifesaver, log onto www.oli.org
