Creating Traffic Incident Management Teams for Responder Safety

Presented by Jack Sullivan

Presentation Date: Wed 08/27/14 - 12:00 PM CDT

Sponsored by: Verizon Wireless

One of the best ways to provide safety at the scene of roadway incidents doesn't happen at the scene. Multi-agency collaboration, communication and cooperation begins long before your units are even dispatched to a highway incident. Rather than exchanging business cards in the middle of the interstate at 3 a.m., your agency should be actively involved with a local or regional Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Team. This session will explain the benefits of TIM Teams and will provide examples of how various regions have improved responder safety and reduced incident clearance times through TIM Team activities.
