Operation Lifesaver names state coordinators in New Hampshire, Delaware

Operation Lifesaver Inc. (OLI) yesterday announced new state coordinators for New Hampshire and Delaware.

John Robinson is the new state coordinator for New Hampshire Operation Lifesaver, succeeding longtime leader Lyman Cousens, while Robert Perrine will take over the Delaware program from Bob King, OLI President and Chief Executive Officer Joyce Rose announced in a press release.

A New Hampshire native and third-generation railroader, Robinson worked for 23 years in track and structures construction for a commuter-rail system in New York. In 1997, he returned to New Hampshire and currently serves as rail safety inspector and investigator with the state's Department of Transportation. He joined New Hampshire's Operation Lifesaver Committee in 2000.

"Operation Lifesaver is grateful to Lyman Cousens for his 25 years of service as New Hampshire’s state coordinator," said Rose. "John Robinson's experience with the New Hampshire committee makes him an excellent choice to lead the program forward."
Perrine is railroad program manager with the Delaware Department of Transportation, which he joined in 1999.

"We look forward to working with Bob Perrine on increasing rail safety awareness and community outreach in Delaware," said Rose.
