Operation Lifesaver is a partnership initiative of the Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada. The program works in cooperation with the rail industry, government, police, unions, and many public organizations and community groups, and aims to save lives by educating Canadians about the hazards surrounding rail property and trains. Operation Lifesaver's goal is to prevent collisions between trains and motor vehicles and also works to prevent trespassing incidents that lead to serious injury or death through Education, Engineering, and Enforcement. Operation Lifesaver saves lives by educating Canadians about the hazards surrounding rail property and trains.
