300,000 Emergency Responders Have Completed TIM Training
In this View from the Administration available from AASHTOvideo, Transportation TV takes you to the November 16, 2017 news conference where U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao announced that 300,000 emergency responders nationwide had completed a training program designed to save lives. Chao used the press conference to encourage emergency responders to complete the Federal Highway Administration’s TIM training program. TIM Training is given to state DOT road crews, law enforcement, firefighters, emergency medical crews and tow truck operators to improve collaboration and coordination. TIM uses cutting-edge practices to improve communications, speed incident response times and decrease the time it takes to clear an accident scene. Clearing accidents quickly speeds the transport of victims to the hospital and reduces the likelihood of secondary crashes.
