Georgia: Working Together Over TIME
Working in and around traffic is risky business – but it is something that incident responders do day-in and day-out. Educating these responders regarding the significance of quick and safe roadway clearance is vital. Thankfully, leaders of the Metro Atlanta Traffic Incident Management Enhancement (TIME) Task Force have managed to unify a diverse mix of people, agencies and businesses for this distinct purpose.

And as traffic incident management practitioners from throughout Georgia gather this week at the 2014 TIME Task Force Annual Conference, today - September 30th - has been proclaimed as Traffic Incident Management Day in Georgia.
