The VFIS Traffic Incident Management (TIM) program is approved by the Federal Highway Administration as SHRP2 equivalent (National TIM program) where participants may obtain SHRP2 certificates following successful completion of this course. This TIM program (formerly Highway Safety) is designed to help ESO personnel minimize the risk of responding on or near a highway by understanding the elements of a safe work zone and recognizing the potential hazards in operating on or near a highway. The program covers items including the need for advanced warning, apparatus positioning and placement, multi-agency communication, scene lighting, retro-reflective and fluorescent personal protective equipment and coordination of on-scene apparatus and personnel.
