TIM… the public safety discipline -
As a public safety discipline TIM builds its foundation on effective interagency collaboration, understanding and cooperation. Well-conceived TIM strategies and policies proactively engage;

•Law enforcement (C.L.E.E.T Credit Approved)
•Fire
•Transportation
•Emergency medical services
•Towing
•Public works
•Haz-mat disciplines

By working towards an enhanced level of interagency coordination, collaboration and communication all response agencies who engage in Traffic Incident Management activities can leverage their collective resources, using these to advance the National Unified Goal (NUG) for TIM;

•Responder Safety,
•Safe, Quick Clearance,
•Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications

Traffic Incident Management - Outreach Toolkit
 

We know how important Traffic Incident Management (TIM) is to the safety and reliability of our roadways and want to provide the tools you need to educate the public. The TIM Toolkit was developed to help TIM programs across the country promote their message clearly and cost-effectively. With your help, we can teach the general public about the value of TIM and how we can work together towards the goal of safe, free-flowing, reliable roadways for everyone.
