National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training

Brandy Station (Culpeper County), VA | February 23, 2017 | Other Training Opportunities

Activity Image A new coordinated, multi-disciplinary training program developed through the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) available for all emergency responders and those supporting Traffic Incident Management operations. This training puts police, firefighters, state and local departments of transportation, towing, medical personnel, and other incident responders on the same page, leading to a safer, faster, integrated responder team.

Why this is important… Responders are being struck and killed at traffic incidents in the U.S. on an average of:

  • 5 Firefighters each year
  • 1 Law Enforcement Officer each month
  • 1 Tow Truck Operator each week
  • 1 Road Worker every three days


Receive in-service credit through DCJS, OEMS, and/or VDFP.

Save Lives

  • Faster incident response and clearance times result in fewer secondary crashes.
  • Training results in less exposure of responder team to moving traffic during recovery.

Save Money

  • Less congestion leads to fewer freight and traveler delays in backups.
  • Fewer secondary crashes save on insurance claims.
  • Faster cleanups lead to cost savings for incident personnel.

Save Time

  • Smarter response techniques cut congestion clearance time-decreasing delays.
