Operation Lifesaver Canada seeks nominees for 2014 Roger Cyr Award


Operation Lifesaver Canada is seeking nominations for the Roger Cyr Award, which is presented annually to an individual to recognize their efforts to improve safety at grade crossings and help reduce trespassing incidents. Nomination forms are due March 31.

Operation Lifesaver Canada plans to announce the 2014 winner during Rail Safety Week, which will be held from April 28 to May 4.

Launched in 1981, the Roger Cyr Award for Public-Rail Safety is named after Operation Lifesaver Canada's founder. Best practices collected during the award process are shared with Operation Lifesaver, Transport Canada and the Railway Association of Canada.

Mike Cormier of Halifax, Nova Scotia, won the award last year. He was honored for helping to promote public awareness of rail safety through his work as a Nova Scotia Operation Lifesaver committee member.
