National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Emergency Responder Training

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

·       5  Firefighters each year

·       1  Law Enforcement Officer each month

·       1  Tow Truck Operator each week

·       Numerous transportation professionals each year from DOTs, Public Works, and Safety Service Patrols

The National TIM Responder Training Program was developed by responders for responders, and was designed to establish the foundation for and promote consistent training of all responders to achieve the three objectives of the TIM National Unified Goal (NUG):

  • Responder Safety
  • Safe, Quick Clearance
  • Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications

This unique, multidisciplinary training promotes a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance at traffic incidents scenes; prompt reliable and open communications; and motorist and responder safeguards. Better incident response can cut incident response time in half.

Topics to be covered include:

  • TIM Fundamentals & Terminology
  • Notification & Scene Size-up
  • Safe Vehicle Positioning
  • Scene Safety
  • Command Responsibilities
  • Traffic Management
  • Special Circumstances
  • Clearance & Termination
