Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Training brings police, firefighters, DOT, towing, medical personnel, and other incident responders together to engage in interactive, hands-on incident resolution exercises. Learning to coordinate response activities and optimize operations is vital to responding effectively in the field and to building a unified national practice on incident management.
The goal of the New Jersey TIM Training is to provide 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 safety
This training covers many TIM recommended procedures and techniques, including:
- Guidelines Fundamentals and Terminology
- Notification and Scene Size-Up
- Scene Safety & Risk Management
- Traffic Management
- Special Circumstances
- Clearance and Termination
The training is built for law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, transportation agencies, towing and recovers professionals, notification and dispatch personnel, HazMat responders, coroners and medical examiners, public works, media and anyone who may respond to incidents.
In support of the Federal Highway (FHWA) Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2) TIM training efforts, New Jersey offers a 4 hr National Compliant Training reflective of time and resource constraints of today’s first responders.
