Three E’s of Operation Lifesaver

The Operation Lifesaver Program is a comprehensive rail safety philosophy that consists of the 3 E’s: Education, Engineering and Enforcement for Texas’s railways.


Increased awareness equals increased safety, both behind the wheel and on foot. Operation Lifesaver educational outreach programs mean safer communities.


By promoting effective and modern engineering, Texas Operation Lifesaver is encouraging innovators to research and develop new and effective ways of making grade crossings safer, lessening the chance of a tragic incident.


The laws that govern our state’s railways are in place to keep people safe at designated crossing areas, and away from private railroad property. Texas Operation Lifesaver supports aggressive enforcement of these laws, as well as Grade Crossing Collision Investigation (GCCI) courses, Officer on the Train (OOT) events, and classes for emergency first responders.
