Highway Incident Management Training
Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013 @ 11:49:10 CDT
Topic: Training

There will be three(3) training sessions regarding how to manage highway incidents on March 28th and 29th.  This training brings together all agencies/persons who are most often the first on the scene of an incident (fire, accident, emergency road closure, etc.) into one training where we all can learn the laws, responsibilities and concerns of other agencies.  Highway Incident Management Training was developed by the State of Illinois and has been adopted nationwide.

At this time, this is the only scheduled training for Highway Incident Management Training in Northwest Illinois . This class is FREE and you must register by March 26 to attend.

The training is usually performed by a team of instructors representing the Illinois Department of Transportation, Illinois State Police, Fire Personnel, Tow Truck industry and other First Responders.  In the words of one of the trainers, "the more agencies represented in the class the better".

Highway Incident Management Training for ALL Emergency Responders including Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, EMA/ESDA, Highway Departments, Townships, Villages/Municipalities, Tow Truck operators and Volunteers who might be called to assist at an incident.  This class is FREE, and you must register by March 26 to attend.
Space is limited so please register as soon as possible and we encourage you to split your personnel among all the different sessions to provide a good cross-section of agencies in each session, if possible.
Class sign-in begins 30 minutes prior to the start of each session.
