EDC Exchange: SHRP2 Traffic Incident Management Responder Training

Traffic Incident Management (TIM) is a planned and coordinated multidisciplinary practice designed to detect, respond to, and clear traffic incidents that allows traffic flow to be restored as safely and quickly as possible. Since effective TIM is critical to ensure improved responder and motorist safety, reduced traffic congestion, and enhanced system performance and reliability, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is deploying a standardized, and cost-effective training framework and curriculum that are vital to spur widespread adoption of best practices and to promote consistency in application.

This EDC Exchange will present information about Tier I of this training, which is focused on safe, efficient incident mitigation activities and was developed for incident responders to acquire a common set of core competencies that promote a shared understanding of the recommendations for achieving the National Unified Goal for TIM; Responder Safety, Safe Quick Clearance and Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications. Tier I training includes on-scene activities including detection/verification, response, site management, clearance/ removal, and traffic management with a focus on responder safety.
