OLI Campaign Targets Farm Equipment

Operation Lifesaver is targeting farmers and operators of large farm equipment in its latest safety campaign.

The organization has created material designed to help operators of farm machinery avoid incidents around railroad tracks.

The materials include auto and video public service announcements, rail safety presentations, and a rail safety sticker.

The campaign has a particular focus on such youth organizations as 4-H and the Future Farmers of America.

In a news release announcing the program, OLO noted that 2020 preliminary Federal Railroad Administration statistics showed that 325 crossing collisions occurred at private rail crossings and resulted in 22 fatalities and 111 injuries.
