The purpose of the TIME Task Force is three-fold:
1. To continue the dialogue on ways to improve inter-agency coordination and cooperation.
2. To create an opportunity for multi-agency training which promotes teamwork.
3. To serve as a platform for participants to develop common operational strategies and a better understanding of other agencies’ roles and responsibilities.
Did You Know…over 50% of the congestion in the Atlanta region is caused by non-recurring incidents.
