Responders Launch Unified Plan to Clear Scenes Faster

A news conference this morning will launch the National Unified Goal for Traffic Incident Management. An ambitious undertaking, the program unites the International Association of Fire Chiefs and 18 other responder groups who are cooperating to plan, train, and exercise together in order to clear crash scenes more safely and quickly.

The news conference is set for 10 a.m. Eastern at the Montgomery County Public Safety Communications Center in Gaithersburg, Md. EMTs, firefighters, highway workers, law enforcement officers, tow truck operators, 911 professionals, and federal officials will be present to kick off implementation of the National Unified Goal as the Thanksgiving travel rush begins "in order to increase public awareness that reducing traffic congestion and increasing roadway safety requires responders and motorists to work together," the IAFC said.

Besides responder representatives, scheduled speakers at the news conference include Federal Highway Administration Administrator Rick Capka, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, and representatives of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, AAA, IAFC, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the National Association of State EMS Officials, and the Towing and Recovery Association of America.
