The National Traffic Incident Management Responder Training was created for responders, by responders. This course provides first responders a shared understanding of the requirements for safe, quick clearance of traffic incident scenes; prompt, reliable, and open communication; and motorist and responder safeguards. First responders learn how to operate more efficiently and collectively.
Whenever possible, we recommend in-person training. The unique opportunities to work with responders from multiple disciplines and strengthen relationships in your community are consistently rated as some of the strongest benefits of these classes.
