Operation Lifesaver appoints new officers


Operation Lifesaver's board recently elected William Barringer chairman and re-elected Clyde Hart Jr. vice chairman. Steven Neubauer, a board member since 2012, was elected secretary-treasurer.

Barringer serves as director of grade crossing safety for Norfolk Southern Corp. He has been involved in Operation Lifesaver since 1979 and served on its National Advisory Council (NAC) prior to joining the board in 2012.

He succeeds Cliff Stayton, director of hazardous materials programs at CSX Corp., who stepped down as chairman. During his time on the Operation Lifesaver board, Stayton led an effort to improve the organization's financial footing and set measurable goals to improve its profile. While Stayton's responsibilities at CSX have shifted from public safety to hazmat, he has registered to become an authorized Operation Lifesaver volunteer.

Meanwhile, the board also welcomed new members Scott Sauer, director of system safety for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority; Shayne Gill, program manager with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials; and Michael Logue, Amtrak's chief safety officer.

Operation Lifesaver's 14-member board consists of railroad safety chiefs, a transit representative, a state coordinator, NAC's chair and vice-chair, and representatives from Operation Lifesaver's partner organizations.
