Traffic Incident Management for Responders

The Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Responder Course was developed through the Strategic Highway Research Program and administered through the Federal Highway Administration. This four-hour program is provided by the Arizona Department of Transportation and the Arizona Department of Public Safety and uses a multiple-discipline perspective to train first responders within states, regions and localities how to operate more efficiently and collectively. This unique course for first responders promotes a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance at traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable and open communications; and motorist and responder safeguards. The TIM training program focuses on a response effort that protects motorists and responders while minimizing the impact on traffic flow, including detecting, verifying and responding to incidents; clearing the incident scene; and restoring traffic flow.

Target Audience

To be effective, this course requires a mix of disciplines, including law enforcement, fire, transportation, emergency medical services, public safety, towing and recovery, public works, and hazardous materials (HAZMAT) disciplines.
