This 4 hour TIME responder training workshop will educate public works professionals on what TIME is and the role municipal DPW staff can and do play in responding to incidents. While traffic incidents are the most common, flooding, tornadoes and other civil emergencies also require a coordinated response with all of the responders being on the same page as to roles and process.
(THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS TRAINING WORKSHOP, HOWEVER REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO ASSURE SEATING AND SUFFICIENT MATERIALS.)
The issue of incident management and response has gotten much more attention in the last few years. FHWA is taking a very serious look as to how we all respond and how we work together. Responder safety is getting more and more attention and rightly so. Having all of the various responder groups, EMS, Law Enforcement, Fire, Highway/Public Works, Towing, Emergency Government, DOT and a number of others, meeting regularly and communicating on responder issues, is a huge improvement over how it was 10 years ago.
Highways and Public Works fill very valuable roles during these times. At accident scenes, Public Works may be setting detours, doing traffic control, cleaning up spills, inspecting damaged infrastructure or assisting in any way to get the roadway open and the accident scene cleared. Public Works typically acts as a support role although it is who often a highway or department of public works employee is first or second on the scene. Make sure to reserve a spot for yourself and any from your local agency who would benefit from this training.
