Event description

Description

The Virginia Deptarment of State Police and Virginia Department of Transportation are offering a new coordinated, multi-disciplinary training program developed through the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) available for all emergency responders and those supporting Traffic Incident Management operations. This training puts police, firefighters, state and local departments of transportation, towing, medical personnel, and other incident responders on the same page, leading to a safer, faster, integrated responder team.

Save Money

  • Fewer secondary crashes save on insurance claims.
