What is Operation Lifesaver?

Oklahoma Operation Lifesaver (OKOL) is a nonprofit, public safety education program committed to preventing and reducing collisions, death, and injuries at highway-rail grade crossings and on railroad rights-of-way. It has a wide variety of partners, including federal, state, and local government agencies, highway safety and transportation organizations, and the nation's railroads. OKOL was established in 1979 and is a member of the national organization, Operation Lifesaver, Inc., which is headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia.

Our education efforts include increasing the public's awareness of the dangers at highway-rail grade crossings and railroad rights-of-way through free Operation Lifesaver safety presentations made by trained, certified volunteers. The program strives to improve driver and pedestrian behavior at highway-rail grade crossings by encouraging compliance with traffic laws relating to crossing signs and signals. In conjunction with its education program, OKOL emphasizes the enforcement of existing traffic and trespassing laws, consolidation and closure of redundant highway-rail grade crossings, and engineering improvements, including the installation and upgrading of crossing warning devices and signs.
