2013 Freeway Incident Management Training
FREEWAY INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TRAINING
The goal of the Freeway Incident Management (FIM) training course is to initiate a common, coordinated response to traffic incidents that will build partnerships, enhance safety for emergency personnel, reduce upstream traffic accidents, improve the efficiency of the transportation system, and improve air quality in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. FIM training is typically provided to first responders and managers, and executive level policymakers and explains the goals, objectives, and benefits of multi-agency incident management coordination. This course provided by ITS Texas and NCTCOG extends this training to the engineers and planners of ITS in order to share “real-world field experiences” so better systems may be developed.
The training will be followed by a one hour tour of the DalTrans Transportation Management Center. The tour will visit a number of areas of the facility including the Operations floor where TxDOT, Dallas County Sheriff’s Office and DART personnel operate the highway system in the Dallas region.
FIM Learning Objectives:
In this course, we will discuss in detail the “best practices” methods used throughout the country. Local incident management policy and procedures will also be discussed. This course is specifically designed for ITS engineers and planners to address traffic incidents on their region’s freeways.
