Out with the old and in with the new.
Operation Lifesaver (OL) is starting 2018 off right with a new and improved website: www.operationlifesaver.ca
. The new site replaces all our former sites, ensuring our rail safety resources are just a simple click away. Plus, we’ve added cool features like an interactive map with nationwide rail incident statistics and an easy application process for our new Rail Safety Ambassadors.
“It was time for an update. We really want to ensure our website provides users with easy access to the rail safety information and resources they’re looking for,” says Operation Lifesaver’s National Director, Sarah Mayes. “By offering all of our resources under one umbrella, we’ll be better able to showcase the great work we’re doing with our partners to educate Canadians and promote rail safety—and ultimately, save lives.”

“The new site looks very fresh and modern, with engaging photos that will appeal to a younger audience. I especially like the Railway Crossing and Trespassing Incidents Map, which gives an effective visual representation of statistics by province.”
