State and local Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs cover a broad range of maturity from emerging programs to those that are advanced. The Talking TIM Webinar Series seeks to provide a forum where TIM champions with any level of experience can exchange information about current practices, programs, and technologies. Each month, Talking TIM will highlight successful programs, identify best practices, and showcase technology that advances the profession.
This month's webinar will feature the streamlined FHWA TIM Self Assessment (kicking off in September), the innovative Arizona TIM program, and how EMS responder communities can earn professional credits for National TIM Responder training. Presenters on these topics include:
Brief FHWA Introduction & TIM Training Updates – Paul Jodoin and Jim Austrich, FHWA Office of Operations
Meet the Executive leadership Group – Dia Gainor National Association of State EMS Officials
Rebecca Brewster, President and Chief Operating Officer at the American Transportation Research Institute, will introduce the streamlined and updated FHWA TIM Self Assessment Tool. This tool helps TIM coalitions and programs identify what they are doing well and where they may benefit from additional focus.
Captain John Paul Cartier, Arizona Department of Public Safety, and Angela Roper Barnett, Executive Director of the Arizona Towing Association. This dynamic duo will spotlight how their use of Training Awards, TIM data, and collaboration improves responder safety and overall operations.
Jim Austrich, FHWA TIM Program Manager, will spotlight the recent accreditation that now provided continuing educational units (CEUs) to licensed firefighters, paramedics or emergency medical technicians for the National TIM Responder Training four-hour course.
The Talking TIM webinar series brings to your desk the great and varied work happening on the ground and around the country in traffic incident management. Topics touch on issues of relevance for TIM executives, managers, operators, and responders. Be sure to tune in to each session for ideas, tools, and resources to support and advance safe and quick clearance of roadway incidents.
