The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to provide a framework for agencies to organize and conduct current and future TIM efforts, and to evolve these efforts into a formal long-term sustained program. It should be noted that this Plan was designed for use on limited access highways; nevertheless, this guidance can also be applied to local roads and jurisdictions.
The purpose of this document is to provide uniform operational guidelines to ensure safe operations by emergency responders dispatched to incidents on limited access highways and other roadways as applicable in the State of New Jersey.
The document provides incident responders with uniform operational guidelines to ensure safe operations on the following limited access highway in Camden and Gloucester Counties: NJ 42, NJ 55, I-676, I-76, and I-295.
The National Traffic Incident Management Coalition is committed to working together to promote, develop, and sustain multidisciplinary, multijurisdictional Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs to achieve enhanced responder safety; safe, quick traffic incident clearance; and more prompt, reliable, interoperable communications.
The Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) delivered two products to improve traffic incident on-scene management. The first product is a multi-disciplinary training course that promotes a shared understanding of the requirements for quick clearance and safeguards responders and motorists. Transportation leaders, police, and firefighters across the country can save money, time, and lives by championing full-scale deployment of these innovative training courses focused on traffic incident management (TIM). Refer to the SHRP2 one-page flyer or the SHRP2 Web site for more information about this program.
