National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training
Martinsville, VA | May 17, 2017 | Other Training Opportunities
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
THIS TRAINING IS PROVIDED AT NO COST!
Receive in-service credit through DCJS, OEMS, and/or VDFP. EMTs & Paramedics receive 4.0 CEs in Category 1 from OEMS.
- Faster incident response and clearance times result in fewer secondary crashes.
- Training results in less exposure of responder team to moving traffic during recovery.
- 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.
- Smarter response techniques cut congestion clearance time-decreasing delays.
