Why this is important: Responders are being struck and killed at traffic incidents in the U.S. on average:

  • 5 Firefighters each year.

  • 1 Law Enforcement Officer each month.

  • 1 Tow Truck Operator each week.

Numerous transportation professionals each year from DOTs, Public Works, and Safety Service The National TIM Responder Training Program was developed by responders for responders, and was designed to establish the foundation for and promote consistent training of all responders to achieve the three objectives of the TIM National Unified Goal (NUG):

  • Responder Safety
  • Safe, Quick Clearance
  • Prompt, Reliable, Interoperable Communications

The Train-the-Trainer (TtT) course is intended to provide participants (i.e., trainers) the knowledge and materials necessary for them to conduct TIM training for TIM responders in their area or state. The TtT is a one-day course that covers 8 hours of material, including classroom training as well as hands-on and outdoor activities. Once trainers have completed the TtT course, they will have the flexibility to train others as appropriate using either the full version of the training or through use of a condensed 4-hour version of the training.

The target audience for this course is experienced trainers from all TIM disciplines, including: Law Enforcement, Fire/Rescue, Emergency Medical Service, Towing and Recovery, Emergency Management, Communications, and Highway/Transportation. Each TtT participant is expected to have both prior instructional and TIM experience.
