Traffic incidents caused by wrecks, breakdowns, hazards in the road and weather events happen every day. These incidents result in injuries, fatalities, billions of dollars of damages, and delays in travel. They also create great risk to responders from all disciplines. The lack of standard protocols, coordination, and communication among responders from police, fire, EMS, towing and public transportation agencies has caused major hindrances to safe, quick clearance. FHWA created this multi-disciplinary TIM Responder course to address these problems.  If your agency deals with traffic incidents, this workshop is for you.

After Attending This Session, You Will be Better Able to:
1. Recognize the unique role of Public Works in Traffic Incident Management.
2. Determine how to plan and prepare for a ready response to traffic incidents.
3. Promote better cooperation, communication, and collaboration among responders.
