Talking TIM Webinar Series: June 2019

FHWA Office of Operations


State and local Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs cover a broad range of maturity from emerging programs to those that are advanced. The Talking TIM Webinar Series seeks to provide a forum where TIM champions with any level of experience can exchange information about current practices, programs, and technologies. Each month, Talking TIM will highlight successful programs, identify best practices, and showcase technology that advances the profession. The June webinar will focus on updates on the Emergency Responder Day at ITS America, the Safety Service Patrol Industry Association and Oregon DOT’s new Video and Annual Conference. Then will have presentations on: Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) / TMC Integration Project An Overview of Maryland’s CHART Program and Operations Georgia Coordinated Highway Assistance and Maintenance Program (CHAMP) Learning Objective: Better understand current TIM practices, technologies, and programs.



Paul Jodoin: Paul is the TIM Program Manager in the FHWA Office of Operations with over 40 years of transportation experience between his state and Federal careers. He will be discussing the benefits of integrating public safety CAD data with TMCs, including earlier detection, faster response, and quicker clearance. CAD integration benefits both public safety and transportation agencies, but most importantly, responder safety.

Scott is the Director of Maryland’s Coordinated Highway Accident Response Team (CHART) and a longtime traffic safety and traffic operations proponent in the state of Maryland.
