Traffic Incident Management Training is Improving Safety, Transforming Incident Response Across MissouriAuthor/Presenter: Becker, Christine; Appel, Sherry
The National Traffic Incident Management training program improves collaboration on site and encourages regular communication in between incidents to maximize effectiveness. As of mid-January 2014, more than 31,370 responders in 33 states have already completed the training program and are producing significant improvements in incident response across the country. Three train-the-trainer sessions were held in Missouri in 2013 and fourteen additional training sessions have been scheduled. After seeing significant reductions in clearance times and improved safety, more states are now requiring their highway patrol or state police to take the training.
