Highway Work Zone TIM Training Webinar (Free)
Feb. 8, 2017 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The US DOT FHWA has developed a new training presentation for first responders on the best practices on prevention, response and follow-up involving Work Zone Traffic Incident Management (WZ TIM). Dealing with motor vehicle crashes or similar incidents in a highway construction zone requires the combined skills of many people including police, fire, emergency medical services (EMS), highway agency, and contractor personnel. WZ-TIM is more complicated than ordinary TIM because access to the incident site is often difficult, there is limited space for response operations, and there are more organizations to coordinate.

Free TIM Webinar - Oct. 13

Free T3 Webinar: Making the Business Case for Traffic Incident Management Programs
Thursday, October 13, 2016
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET

Agencies know intuitively that there is a profound value in traffic incident management (TIM) programs; however, it is often challenging to estimate and communicate the value of TIM internally to executive management and externally to decision makers. Typically, a one-time report presenting an “analysis,” “evaluation,” or “study” is generated to summarize benefits after a TIM program or project has been implemented. This report, while a key component of a solid business case, is not sufficient to transform a TIM program or project from a stand-alone effort to a core-sustaining function of an agency. To guide TIM agencies and their partner organizations towards the development of a strong business case for their programs, FHWA has developed a report, “Making the Business Case for Traffic Incident Management.”

During the webinar, participants will learn about the four-phase process for developing a TIM business case, as well as the key components and products required for an effective business case. Additionally, participants will hear of firsthand experiences from two State DOT representatives on the progression for their rural and urban TIM programs. Participants will learn how these two different DOTs made their business case, the challenges they faced in establishing their program, and the value they found from conducting and communicating their program’s business case.
