Does anyone have information regarding a training program for Traffic Control for firefighters? Any assistance that can be offered is appreciated.

Not sure how things out where your are, but in my department all firefighters are given a traffic control course. This course is run by a private company that contracts its services out to fire departments and complies with all sorts regulations. They do everything from traffic control to emergency vehicle operations.
The actual traffic control course deals with setting up traffic control, merging lanes, changing traffic patterns, communications, scene safety, etc etc etc.
The companies name is "Roadmasters."
I think that is their website, if they don't have any offices near you, they may be able to point you in the right direction.
On a personal note, the course is good for the basics and new guys, but a lot of the scenarios (or at least the ones we ran) where not that realistic. However, the info they provide can be used universally at almost any accident.
Good luck, until then do what we do, and shut all traffic down until we are done, the cops set it up, or we can spare the manpower."No one ever called the Fire Department for doing something smart..."
