 The National Traffic Incident Management Coalition (NTIMC) is a unique forum where national organizations representing major stakeholders involved in traffic incident response work together. Our members represent the Emergency Medical Services, Fire, Law Enforcement, Public Safety Communications, Towing and Recovery, and  Transportation communities. NTIMC promotes multidisciplinary, multi-jurisdictional Traffic Incident Management (TIM) programs.
 
  The National Unified Goal (NUG) for Traffic Incident Management is a unified national policydeveloped by major national organizations representing traffic incident responders, under the leadership of the NTIMC.

 

* The NUG is not mandatory*  It encourages State and local transportation and public safety agencies to adopt unified, multi-disciplinary policies, procedures, and practices that will dramatically improve the way traffic incidents are managed on U.S. roadways.

*The NUG does not address funding * ; it describes what we need to do to improve traffic incident management. By joining together to pursue common goals, TIM stakeholders can leverage their opportunities to secure resources to pursue these goals.
