Louisiana Operation Lifesaver: A Freight Train

Become an Authorized Volunteer

Currently OLI is working with our railroads and transportation partners to evaluate our national training program so that we will continue to provide the most effective method to promote rail safety within our communities.

During this transition, if you would like to volunteer for Louisiana Operation Lifesaver and be placed on our waiting list for future training, please submit the form below. When details are available for the new training program, you will be notified.

Each year thousands of people in Louisiana -- driver education students, school bus operators, professional truck drivers, law enforcement, emergency responders, school children, and members of civic organizations -- receive Operation Lifesaver safety messages from an OL Authorized Volunteer.

OL volunteers are people from all walks of life: locomotive engineers and other train crew members, teachers, retirees, health professionals, police officers, truck drivers, students and maybe even you!

If you want to share our railroad safety message and you enjoy public speaking, please submit the form below.
