Operation Lifesaver Canada

Operation Lifesaver Canada Rail safety program by Transport Canada and the Railway Association of Canada. LOOK, LISTEN & LIVE! Operation Lifesaver saves lives by educating Canadians about the hazards surrounding rail property and trains.

Our goal is to prevent collisions between trains and motor vehicles. We also work to prevent trespassing incidents that lead to serious injury or death. We must continue our mission because one injury or fatality is one too many, especially when you consider that virtually every incident is preventable.

Parachute’s National Teen Driver Safety Week (NTDSW) is an annual campaign supported by Desjardins and CN to build awareness of teen driver safety issues and to encourage community and youth involvement as part of the solution. Our 2021 theme: #SpeedIsNoGame.

Operation Lifesaver is attending the FCM 2021 Annual Conference and Trade Show. Rail safety is a shared responsibility, and we need Canadian municipalities help to ensure that residents in cities, towns and rural communities stay safe around tracks and trains. Tool kit is available online to help engaging with our rail safety community program (includes quick messages, attractive posts and short videos). Visit us at : https://www.operationlifesaver.ca/initiatives/rail-safety-in-your-community/municipal-toolkit-en/
Interesting idea:
This has your name on it
I am a Youtube contributor whose 'channel' is mainly of railway-related videos. I have recently added this statement to the description in all my videos, "Skeena Pacific is a supporter of the Operation Lifesaver Canada. Operation Lifesaver (OL) is dedicated to preventing collisions at railway crossings and railway trespassing incidents in Canada. They believe the key to achieving this goal is public education. OLC is funded by the Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada, working with the rail industry, governments, law enforcement, labour groups, the media, and other organizations and communities from coast to coast to increase awareness about rail safety—because rail safety is a shared responsibility. https://www.operationlifesaver.ca/ " If this does not meet with your approval, please contact me immediately to revise or remove. My 'channel' is https://www.youtube.com/user/SkeenaPac An email contact is available under the About tab. Thank you for your attention.
P**a, Croatia easy access to the tracks. 😱
should have zero tolerance for trespassers and higher fines
A rail car moves with no sound when rolling!A rail car when the brake is released could roll for miles! Don't go near the tracks or rail cars. Just a touch on the handle can release the brake with a snap, very dangerous!
Now doesn't this look safe
