CHATHAM CO., GA – (WTOC) – TIM Team Chatham, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham counties 

Police and fire officials from Chatham and Effingham counties are teaming up to take on traffic.

Have formed a team called TIM, which stands for Traffic Incident Management. The concept is meant for all agencies to have a common understanding of roles at accidents scenes.

The team met for the first time on Tuesday. Their focus is to have a smoother coordinated response to any roadway crash, but the group didn’t meet because of an increase in crashes on our roadways. They met because of the Savannah Port. The group estimates truck traffic will triple in Chatham, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham counties in the future, thanks to more goods arriving at the port.
