Traffic Incident Management Training for Emergency Responders 2/28
February 28 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Three vehicle crashes involving injuries occur every minute in the United States
putting nearly 39,000 incident responders in harm’s way daily. Disruption and
congestion from these incidents can increase the likelihood of secondary crashes,
cause delays, and increase driver frustration.
The longer responders remain on the
scene, the greater the risk they, and the traveling public, face. Correct traffic incident
management (TIM) focuses on responding
in a way that protects motorists and
emergency personnel while minimizing negative effects on traffic. TIM practices
include detecting, verifying, and responding to incidents; clearing
the incident scene;
and restoring traffic flow.
Using a multi-discipline approach, first responders in New Jersey will learn how to
operate more efficiently and act collectively. The training covers topics including
guidelines, fundamentals, and terminology; notifications and scene size up; scene
safety and risk management; traffic management; special circumstances; clearance;
This course is open to all traffic-incident first responders including personnel in
law enforcement, fire fighting, emergency medical services (EMS), public safety,
public works, towing and recovery, and hazardous materials (HAZMAT).
