Coming to California: Operation Lifesaver to host international symposium in July


Grade crossing safety and trespassing prevention will be hot topics this summer at Operation Lifesaver Inc.’s 14th international symposium and training seminar. To be held July 9-12 at the Crown Plaza Resort in Anaheim, Calif., the event will focus on advances and best practices in highway-rail safety education, infrastructure engineering and law enforcement.

The seminar will include presentations and workshops targeted at freight- and passenger-rail executives, locomotive engineers, conductors, first responder trainers, public safety personnel, truck drivers, professional driver trainers and educators. Held every other year, the event also will offer something new: a half-day session examining the light-rail industry’s crossing and pedestrian safety issues.
