West Virginia Operation
Lifesaver is a nonprofit (501 (c)3), public safety, education group. It is our
goal to prevent injuries and fatalities at highway-rail grade crossings in our
state and to prevent injuries and fatalities to those who chose to trespass on
railroad property. Our group consists mainly of transportation and education
professionals who volunteer their time to speak to thousands of West Virginians
each year. Click on the areas listed near the top of the page to learn more about us or to request an Operation Lifesaver presenter for your group or class.

West Virginia Operation Lifesaver volunteers recently spent four days at the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival in Milton. This is the second largest event WVOL attends during the year. Thousands were in attendence and according to WVOL State Coordinator John Perry, "There was also thousands of children at the festival. We folded and fitted nearly 9,000 paper engineer hats in four days. Thats more than we do at the State Fair." Click each photo below for a larger image.
