Crash Responder Safety Week (#CRSW) 2022: November 14-18

The Crash Responder Safety Week (CRSW) initiative, recognizing all traffic incident management (TIM) response communities, will take place this year from November 14-18, 2022.

This week affords a unique opportunity for every Traffic Incident Management (TIM) community to make a difference individually and jointly for roadway safety during traffic incidents. TIM communities across the nation come together this week by teaching each other and the motoring public about our common goal and responsibility for safe, quick roadway clearance. To learn more about CRSW, please visit the FHWA CRSW site.

TIM professionals, State and local public information and communications officers, and response community leaders are invited to join the 3-part All-State planning webinar series.

The FHWA TIM Program team (Jim Austrich, Paul Jodoin, and Joe Tebo) then conduct an all-state roll call, requesting that responder communities in each State highlight their plans to commemorate the week. We kindly request highlights be limited to a minute or two. Planning webinars take place on the following dates:
