The TIME Task Force was formed in August 2002 to address the critical issues of mobility and safety related to incident management in the Metro Atlanta region. The task force is made up of concerned incident responders from transportation agencies, fire, rescue, police, towing, emergency medical services, etc. In 2017 the TIME Task Force voted to expanded their coverage outside of Metro Atlanta and are now a statewide program.
We are committed to continue the dialogue of inter-agency coordination and cooperation, to create an opportunity for multi-agency training which promotes teamwork, and to serve as a platform for participants to develop common operation strategies and a better understanding of other agencies’ roles and responsibilities.
The mission of TIME is to develop and sustain a state-wide incident management program to facilitate the safest and fastest roadway clearance, lessening the impact on emergency responders and the motoring public.
We’re always looking for new ideas and/or different perspectives to keep our program offerings and events fresh and relevant to the needs of our members. The TIME Task Force currently hosts quarterly member meetings within the state and one annual traffic incident management conference in Georgia.
The TIME Task Force Board of Directors meets on the 1st Wednesday of every month. While meetings have been historically conducted in-person, meeting are currently conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
