Program Abstract
The first 15 minutes of a roadway incident response are critical. What the first responding units do, and do not do, will impact the response in many ways, including safety, traffic control, secondary incidents, and clearance time. This program captures what the first arriving emergency response personnel should be thinking about related to traffic incident management (TIM) as they are enroute, approaching the scene, sizing up initial conditions, and implementing those first crucial actions in response to the incident.
