Operation Lifesaver, Inc. on Tuesday released its 2012 Annual Report, which reviews the organization's accomplishments, according to President and CEO Joyce Rose.

OLI said the annual report detailed: celebration of the organization's 40th anniversary with a leadership summit in Denver; production of safety education materials for rail commuters, new drivers, school bus drivers and Operation Lifesaver's 50 state programs; work with the Federal Transit Administration and Federal Railroad Administration on grants for safety campaigns and other activities in cities and states around the U.S.; initiation of updates to the OLI volunteer education process; and an increase in OLI's social media presence.

"While the last two years have brought changes in Operation Lifesaver's message delivery model, educational activities, and leadership," Rose said, "our goal remains the same as it was 40 years ago: to reduce incidents, deaths and injuries at highway-rail crossing and on or around rail property. Saving lives is the mission that unites us."
