Webinar for Summit on the National Unified Goal for Traffic Incident Management
The I-95 Corridor Coalition, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and the National Traffic Management Coalition are holding a webinar for those not able to attend the National Unified Goal (NUG) Summit. Developed under the National Traffic Incident Management Coalition (NTIMC), the NUG for Traffic Incident Management (TIM) established three key objectives through a consensus process, which have been endorsed by organizations at the national and regional level. The three objectives include Responder Safety; Safe, Quick, Clearance; and Prompt, Reliable Interoperable Communications. The topics covered in the webinar will include funding options, performance measures, incident management best practices, sustaining TIM teams, service patrols, TIM training, and others. Traffic incident responders from all levels should be encouraged to attend the webinar. This will allow for the opportunity to advance the way traffic incidents are managed through the implementation of the National Unified Goals and strategies.
The free webinar will be held on September 21, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. CST.
