ORANGE, Calif. — Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner, two major league baseball teams, and California Operation Lifesaver are teaming to raise safety awareness near railroad tracks during September.

The Los Angeles Angels, San Diego Padres, and Surfliner will host educational events featuring California Operation Lifesaver experts before upcoming baseball games. The Angels will host an event on Sunday, Sept. 16, prior to their game with Seattle, while the Padres’ event will be Monday, Sept. 17, prior to the game against San Francisco. Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney has also recorded a radio spot encouraging rail safety.

The events are in recognition of U.S. Rail Safety Week (Sept. 23-29) and Rail Safety Month in California.

More information is available at the Surfliner, California Operation Lifesaver, and national Operation Lifesaver websites.
