Vivian Speight Bridges, Director of NC Operation Lifesaver, made the presentation to Salim-Brown, citing her work with the campaign. Salim-Brown found partners such as the Railroad Company to fund the campaign, she helped write grant requests to the national Operation Lifesaver and brought the NC Peanut Growers Association on board to provide favors for the luncheon.

“My philosophy has always been to give all that you have in order to be the best you can

be and the result is always a Win-Win Arena for all involved,” said Salim-Brown.

Operation Lifesaver is a program designed to help save lives at highway-rail grade crossings, the most dangerous spot on any highway or road. Operation Lifesaver is an active, continuous public information and education program to help prevent and reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities by improving driver performance at the nation’s approximately 270,000 public and private highway-rail grade crossings and on rights-of-way. Operation Lifesaver began in Idaho in 1972, and has now grown to chapters in 49 states. The North Carolina Operation Lifesaver was started on April 27, 1979 after the North Carolina Rural Safety Council decided to take it on as a safety project.

“It is a wonderful organization with a group of dedicated people trying to educate motorists and pedestrians to heed to highway-rail safety rules to keep everyone safe,” concluded Salim-Brown.
