Webinar - Roadway Safety – Beyond the Basics of Traffic Incident Management
Many of us have taken the basic four-hour National Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Training Course, but now what? Since 2019, 33 fire and EMS providers have been struck and killed in the United States along with another 173 law enforcement, tow truck operators, and DOT workers. This webinar presented by Todd Leiss will look at next steps for you and your agency including developing an SOP/SOG for roadway safety, additional training, implementing an ongoing training plan, and preparing our personnel, apparatus, and equipment for a safer roadway response.
