Florida Operation Lifesaver is a statewide, non-profit public awareness and education program dedicated to ending tragic collisions, fatalities, and injuries at highway-rail grade crossings and on railroad property.


Florida Operation Lifesaver wants you and your family to be safe around highway-rail grade crossings and trains!

Train Safety Awareness Week 2013 is fast approaching.  Save the date … Train Safety Awareness Week (TSAW) is May 5 to May 11, 2013.

As you approach every highway-rail grade crossing ... always remember to Look, Listen, and Live!

  • Train Safety Awareness Week (TSAW) is May 5 to May 11, 2013

    Florida Sheriffs, Chiefs, Directors, and Rail Safety Partners:

    If your community has railroad tracks or highway-railroad grade crossings please:

    Conduct a safety blitz using your officers to enforce railroad violations at crossings or trespassing violations on railroad property.  Safety blitzes give you a chance to communicate with the public and enforce laws related to railroad safety.

    Use Changeable Message Signs with rail safety slogans such as “Train Safety Week – Look, Listen, & Live”
