TIM Training Merits Cover Story in Missouri

The expanding Traffic Incident Management Responder Training Program in Missouri was featured in the March 2014 edition of The Missouri Municipal Review (below). The cover story spotlights the extensive TIM training programs in the Kansas City, Springfield, and St. Louis areas. More than 500 incident responders are now on Missouri streets, roads, and highways using the more effective quick clearance methods included in the national curriculum.

Master Sergeant Bill Johnson, a crash re-constructionist for the Kansas City Police Department, said the department’s participation in the program has changed how Missouri responders approach traffic crashes. "… we (now) show up with a mission and a plan to clear the accident and keep traffic moving. If we can take an action that prevents someone else from being hurt or killed, that’s what our job is all about."
