Delaware Roadway Incident Responders Earn Professional TIM Designation
The first Traffic Incident Management Personnel Professional Qualifications offering at the Delaware State Fire School (DSFS) was a huge success with 19 students earning a designation as Traffic Control Incident Management Personnel.
The DSFS was accredited to certify Traffic Incident Management Professionals who meet the minimum requirements of NFPA 1091 and pass an examination administered by the school.
NFPA 1091 is a multi-discipline standard that applies to all personnel who are tasked with traffic incident management including fire and EMS, law enforcement, towing and recovery, safety service patrols, public works, and fire police.
Training Administrator Vinnie Miller, Director Tucker Dempsey, and Instructor Richard Toulson were instrumental in expanding the Fire School’s emphasis on traffic incident management and responder safety training in Delaware.
The Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association’s Emergency Responder Safety Institute worked with DSFS to provide study material and an online workbook. These materials help those who wish to prepare for the examination and challenge the examination. Rich Toulson, a former CVVFA Officer and a member of the NFPA 1091 Technical Committee was the perfect instructor to present the material to the class in preparation for the test.
The Emergency Responder Safety Institute congratulates the DSFS and the students who earned their certificates for taking this important step to make the roadways safer for responders and the motoring public.
