National Unified Goal (NUG)

The NTIMC was highly successful in linking the transportation and public safety communities in numerous ways. The creation of the National Unified Goal (NUG) for TIM in the fall of 2007 may have been one of its most successful accomplishments. The NUG’s three major objectives are responder safety; safe, quick clearance; and prompt, reliable, interoperable communications.

The NUG achieves these three major objectives through 18 strategies. Key strategies include recommended practices for multidisciplinary TIM operations and communications; multidisciplinary TIM training; goals for performance and progress; promotion of beneficial technologies; and partnerships to promote driver awareness.
