Operation Lifesaver
WASHINGTON — Operation Lifesaver Inc. is adding three new members to its board of directors. The non-profit rail safety and education organization has named Kenneth “Andy” Elkins, Martin Conway, and Suzanne Te Beau Rohde to its board.

Elkins is manager of hazmat compliance for the Association of American Railroads Bureau of Explosives. He replaces Michael. J. Martino who retired from the AAR as senior director of operations on May 1.

Conway is the deputy chief of Amtrak’s police department for the New York division. He replaces Michael Logue, Amtrak’s chief safety officer, who stepped down from his board position in advance of his upcoming retirement.

Te Beau Rohde is the vice president of government affairs and policy for the American Bus Association. She fills a seat formerly held by the association’s Clyde Hart.

The new board members join a team of other railroad professionals representing Class I railroads, transit agencies, rail industry organizations, and other groups.

Together, the board will continue with its efforts to increase public awareness on the risks of trespassing on and around railroad property. The national organization works with state coordinators in all 50 states in preparing educational materials and public awareness campaigns regarding railroad safety.
