TRAFFIC INCIDENT MANAGEMENT (TIM)

National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training

Training for safer, faster, stronger, more integrated incident response. Three injury crashes occur every minute in the United States, putting nearly 39,000 incident responders potentially in harm’s way every day. Congestion from these incidents often generates secondary crashes, further increasing traveler delay and frustration. The longer incident responders remain at the scene, the greater the risk they, and the traveling public face. A cadre of well-trained responders helps improve traffic incident response. Better incident response improves the safety of responders and drivers, reduces crashes that occur because of incident-related congestion, decreases traffic delays caused by incidents, and can cut incident response time.

The National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training was created by responders for responders. This course provides first responders a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance of traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable and open communication; and motorist and responder safeguards. First responders from all TIM responder disciplines will learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively.

This multidisciplinary training available via two delivery methods, In-Person or Web-Based:
