The Coalition’s Member Agencies have designated three primary focus areas where coordination among multiple modes and multiple jurisdictions would be highly beneficial in furthering transportation improvements.
A committee was established for each focus area, and this page contains highlights of the Coordinated Incident Management & Safety Committee. News items are shown below, and the menu on the right contains links to additional The Coordinated Incident Management & Safety Committee information.
Traffic Incident Management First Responder Training
In coordination with FHWA/SHRP2, the Coalition now conducts Train-the-Trainer 1.5 day session. In recent years, the Coalition has trained thousands of first responders in the elements of quick clearance for incident response.
Highway Operations Group Regional Co-Chairs Meeting
To prepare for future information exchange and best practices sharing, and recognizing the need for establishing relationships among first responders, the Committee’s Leadership is actively setting the agendas for 2016 actions and activities.
Regional Highway Operations Group Meeting
At recent meetings of the various Regional HOGs, the groups agreed that a key outcome of HOGs activities is the pursuit of regional/multi-state incident management/first responder training sessions.
Significant Event Coordination
The Coalition’s Significant Event Coordination program involves all program areas, with closest alignment to the goals and objectives of the HOGs. Recently completed and current significant event coordination projects include a Bridge & Highway Closure survey report, an operational response program for the Northeastern region, and development of a collaborative decision tool providing a communications tool with real-time traffic and weather for use before, during and after significant events.
