IN-TIME TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT TRAINING - MISHAWAKA FD

Penn Firefighters-


We hosted this training last year but not everyone got to attend. I am going to try to send one rig each day to the training.


Representatives from IN-TIME (Indiana Traffic Incident Management Effort) will be offering a 4 hour class on traffic incident management at Mishawaka Station 4 (3000 Harrison Rd) on October 20, 21, and 22 from 8-12 each day. This group works to provide a common framework for the development of traffic incident management policies and training programs for various responders for the safe and efficient mitigation of traffic incidents. More information on IN-TIME can be found at http://www.in.gov/intime/.

Each person must register for the day you plan on attending at www.training4intime.eventbrite.com. This class is limited to 50 people per day.
