Development of A Highway Incident Management Operational and Training Guide For Incident Responders in Illinois
The Illinois Center for Transportation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has released a report that explores development of a training program designed to keep responders safe, prevent secondary incidents, and reduce fatalities in Illinois, while reducing non-recurring congestion caused by the incidents.
The training includes approximately 6.5 hours of classroom time and is divided into eight modules, each providing training to incident responders. The training program was pilot-tested in two regions of Illinois prior to finalization. The pilot training sessions received very positive feedback from more than 50 participants.
