Every year hundreds of people die needlessly on or around California’s railroad tracks. Through free in-person and virtual presentations, rail safety events, focused rail safety videos, media campaigns, and more, California Operation Lifesaver is working hard to bring that number down to zero.
California Operation Lifesaver is an independent non-profit rail safety education organization. We rely on the support of private citizens, corporations, state and local transit organizations, as well as our trained team of Authorized Presenter Volunteers. All our supporters have the CAOL Mission at the heart of their dedicated participation. Through our focused rail safety education, we join together with a mutual goal to save lives and eliminate track tragedies at highway rail grade crossings and along railroad rights-of-way.
