Event Details


Secondary crashes are a leading cause of injuries and deaths to emergency responders working at roadway incidents. In 2019, 44 emergency responders were struck & killed, and thousands of other responders injured at roadway incident scenes, in 2020, 46 emergency responders were struck & killed. So far in 2021, 48 emergency responders have been struck & killed (as of September 29, 2021), this number will surely increase.

Effective communications, increased situational awareness and utilizing a unified command approach to roadway incidents lead to safe, efficient clearance of the roadway and less time being a target for “D” Drivers (Drunk, Drugged, Drowsy, Distracted or just plain Dumb).

This session will look at techniques and best practices for roadway safety for you and your emergency responders and give information on what you can do from the Township level to help support safety in your community.
