Operation Lifesaver, Inc. (OLI) announced it has released its 2022 Annual Report, detailing the year’s accomplishments as OLI celebrated its 50th anniversary.
OLI said its mission is to empower the public to make safe choices when driving or walking near tracks and trains. Since OLI’s inception in 1972, collisions at railroad crossings across the U.S. have dropped by 82% through education, engineering, and enforcement efforts.
What OLI's Report Highlights
The report brings OLI’s efforts alive by highlighting 2022 events, training classes, public outreach, and Rail Safety Week activities as well as providing a summary of grant projects, a financial overview, and a list of the organization's partnerships.
“Our 2022 Annual Report shows the many ways that OLI and its rail safety partners celebrated Operation Lifesaver's 50th Anniversary, including sharing the rail safety message on locomotives and railcars," said OLI executive director Rachel Maleh. "We also created a website landing page with videos from federal safety partners, an interactive timeline, a feature spotlighting 50 Operation Lifesaver Authorized Volunteers (OLAVs), and 12 Train Track Trivia online games. Social media efforts included posts about those 50 volunteers as well as 50 Throwback Thursday social media posts highlighting noteworthy people, materials, and events of the last 50 years.”
