Operation Lifesaver releases online train safety game for kids

(Source: Operation Lifesaver press release, January 25, 2021)

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Operation Lifesaver Inc., (OLI), the national rail safety non-profit, today releases its first interactive online educational game to help kids make safe choices around railroad tracks and trains. Designed for kids ages 7-10, the Train Safety Savvy game is free to play and covers general safety messages, railroad signs and signals and trespass prevention information.

After accessing the game from OLI’s “For Kids” page, players can choose one of four different characters and take virtual train trips to different destinations around the U.S. Players help their character complete the trip by answering questions and responding to interactive challenges.

“About every three hours in the United States, a person or vehicle is hit by a train. Our new online Train Safety Savvy game is designed to engage children while providing lifesaving messages and reinforcing safe behaviors around railroad tracks and trains that they can share with their siblings, friends and parents,” said OLI Education Manager Moriah Whiteman.

Train Safety Savvy is part of a group of free virtual education tools developed for children aged 3-13 and may be found at https://oli.org/info/kids. Parents and teachers can request a free virtual or in-person rail safety presentation at oli.org/request-presentation and find other safety information at www.oli.org.
