Highway Safety Training Beyond the TIMS Class
June 19, 2021 @ 11:00 - 12:00
Instructed by: Todd Liess – Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Coordinator in the Traffic Engineering and Operations Department for the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC).
In 2020, 46 emergency responders were struck & killed during secondary incidents while working along United States roadways, in 2019, 44 emergency responders are struck & killed.
An average of two emergency responders are struck each day in the United States and an emergency responder is struck & injured every other day with an emergency responder struck & killed on average every eight days.
Most of us have taken a 4-hour Traffic Incident Management (TIM) course focused on emergency responder safety but what else is out there and how can we work to get ourselves and our crew safe during a roadway incident?
This session will build on the 4-hour TIM and talk about why we need to focus more on the dangers all responders face each day when at a roadway incident.
Classes / dates & times are subject to change, if necessary.
