Traffic Incident Management in the DVRPC Region

DVRPC's Traffic Incident Management (TIM) Program addresses regional safety issues by managing traffic incident management task forces (IMTFs) and providing software programs like to improve incident management responses and foster inter-agency coordination.

IMTF meetings offer emergency responders the chance to build relationships, discuss incident management protocol, offer training, and share challenges and successes away from the scene of an incident.

Check out our new Traffic Incident Management Committees Drive Roadway Safety video (made in partnership with and Stonehouse Media Inc.) for an inside look into what a TIM Committee does, how it makes emergency responders’ work easier and safer, and the ways its activities help responders deliver superior service to the public at roadway incidents.
