Traffic Incident Management consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary process to detect, respond to and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible. TIM Responder Training brings together personnel across the responder spectrum to build a stronger, more coordinated corps at the local and national level.
Effective TIM is vital to our highway system and saves lives, time and money.
Crashes and "struck-by" incidents continue to be a leading cause of on-duty injuries and deaths for public safety responders and support teams responding to highway incidents.
Traffic incidents are a contributing factor to congestion in the U.S. For every minute a freeway lane is blocked due to an incident, it results in 4 minutes of travel delay1.
Less time spent in backups, fewer secondary crashes and fewer insurance claims means less financial loss due to highway incidents.
A special thanks to our Statewide TIM Responder Training Implementation Committee for helping us improve traffic incident training and response in Oregon.
Multiple response agencies work together to respond to highway incidents:
Every day, first responders risk their lives to keep our highways safe and clear. Together, Oregon’s responder community can shape the next generation of Traffic Incident Management. Encourage your agency and community members to learn about Oregon’s TIM program and promote safe, quick clearance of roadway incidents.
