Traffic Incident Management (TIM)

Crash sceneThree injury crashes occur every minute in the United States, putting nearly 39,000 incident responders potentially in harm’s way every day. Congestion from these incidents often generates secondary crashes, further increasing traveler delay and frustration.

The longer that incident responders remain at a scene, the greater the risk that they, and the traveling public, face. A cadre of well-trained responders helps improve traffic incident response, which in turn improves the safety of responders and drivers, reduces crashes that occur because of incident-related congestion, decreases traffic delays caused by incidents, and can cut incident response time.

TIM ClassThe National Traffic Incident Management program (TIM) was created by responders for responders. This course provides 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 safeguards. First responders from all TIM responder disciplines will learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively.

For questions about the TIM program and upcoming training opportunities, contact Sgt. Owen Ballinger at owen.ballinger@vermont.gov.
