On May 5th, New York State hosted its
first state wide "TIMposium" - Traffic
Incident Management Symposium in Oriskany, NY.
In attendance were representatives from several towing businesses, local and state law
enforcement, the NYS Department of Transportation, and the fire service.
The objectives of the training were to
insure that incidents sites are managed effectively, to make an incident response
rapid and efficient, to create a response that minimizes traffic backups, increase
worker safety around the incident site,
and to improve incident site communications.
Seminars and live demonstrations were
given. Sessions and demonstrations included an On Scene Exercise, Incident
Recap Seminar, TIM Training, and an
overview of a Traffic Management Center followed by a demonstration on a
simulated Traffic Management Center.
we had our Incident Management Sign kit and a Flex-Safe Barricade. The Sign kit
is designed so that one sign can display up to 15 different messages. For more information about the Incident Management Sign kit, please
All in all,
it was a very interesting and informative day. We are looking forward to the
next TIMposium !!
