Are first responders in the loop for the highway plans review process on new or the remodeling of tunnels, bridges, and road construction? What if you have a fire on the roadway? Does your highway have hydrants, how far apart are your turnaround openings, and how wide is the opening? Does your region have a response plan on highway incidents? After the Washington, D.C. incident, NTSB Urges Immediate Action on Emergency Response to Smoke in Tunnels: http://www.ntsb.gov/news/press-releases/Pages/PR20150211b.aspx

Does your region have an After Action Review (AAR) Form Extended Duration Incident like Wisconsin TIME to help improve your response?
