Kentucky's Traffic Incident Management (TIM) training program addresses the challenges of moving people and goods efficiently and safely on the nation's highways. The Program focuses on response efforts that protect motorists and responders while minimizing the impact on traffic flow. TIM efforts include detecting, verifying and responding to incidents; clearing the incident scene; and restoring traffic flow. Based on the severity or type of incident, first responders may represent law enforcement, fire, transportation, emergency medical services, public safety, towing and recovery, public works and hazardous materials (HAZMAT) disciplines. 



Performing effective road safety audits/assessments, (RSAs), improves safety and demonstrates to the public an agency's dedication to crash reduction. An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an independent audit team. The RSA training provides practical information on how to conduct an RSA, select a location, and build an independent, multi-disciplinary team. The costs, time, benefits, and common myths and concerns surrounding RSAs will be discussed. Participants learn how to improve transportation safety by applying a new proactive approach. Emphasis is placed on using low cost safety improvements as well as understanding the interaction between the highway and all road users.
