Why train your responders in TIM ?
Responders are being struck and killed at traffic incidents in the US on an average of: 5 fire fighters each year, 1 law enforcement officer each month, 1 tow truck operator each week and numerous transportation professionals from DOT, Public Works and Safety Service Patrols each year. It is time to collaboratively enhance our safety and efficiency on incident scenes by Training as a single cross disciplined team! The National TIM Responder Training Program was developed by responders for responders, and was designed to establish the foundation for and promote consistent training of all responders to enhance the safety and efficiency of TIM operations.
This class will be delivered to ODOT's Spring Maintenance Academy, we anticipate 40 transportation attendees.
We will have an additional number of seats available for local response professionals or volunteers who would like to join us for the training.
